I like a amber with steak and PA's with sweets. What is your favorite food/beer combo?
I know a lot of people that say they can't eat while they drink but I love to (attempt) pare food w/ brew.
Snickers bars ROCK with beer. Even better cut a thin slice of cheddar , lay it on the snickers bar and yum..
Foster's Isn't fermented in a kangaroo's pouch?

Imported cheeses with sesame crackers paired with pretty much any Belgian Style.
I love the sound of an airlock bubbling in the morning. It sounds like.....VICTORY.

I love a nice sharp/funky cheese with an IPA. With anything sour or bretty, I prefer blue cheese and crackers with a little bit of fig spread.

I cannot eat pizza without a blonde ale or lager. It just doesn't work.

I've cooked cedar planked halibut on the grill about once a week for the last month, and have been enjoying it with my homebrewed wit.

A brownie w/ice cream complements a nice porter or stout wonderfully.

The cans of Leinenkugel's had masking tape on them with JOHN'S printed in ink. Amy looked around me and said, "John is protective about his beer, isn't he?"
"I put that label on there. When company comes I want them to know the Leinie's is his, not mine."

I love a good IPA with anything spicy such as jambalaya.

Spicy or fried -- I like IPA's or a strong blonde.

I like Belgians with seafood, especially fresh oysters. I even poach fish in a tripel and serve the beer with the dish.

DIPA and Indian food is pretty much the best thing ever. Also along a similar vein: vanilla ice cream, fresh mango and garam masala + a saison is pure bliss.

All tables have an ice water carafe, small wine/tulip glasses for the water and a warm mixed "spent grain" bread basket along with a beer bottle candle holder.

A cup of beer cheese soup OR baby button mushrooms boiled in a cream/blond beer with garlic, sweet onion and butter- Paired with 4-6oz. of an aged barley wine (not hoppy)

3 Breaded, deep fried jumbo shrimp, with a few pinches of hops (like 1 crushed pellets worth of dust) in the batter. Served with wasabi and a spicy hot "asian style" General Tso's dipping sauce. Paired with 6-8oz of an IPA or IIPA.

Palate adjustment:
A small cube of 10 year cheddar served with 3oz. of porter to cleanse the palate.

Main course:

Bacon wrapped tenderloin - flash seared in a bourbon reduction w/ a light montreal seasoning, grilled to order over a mesquite hardwood grill. Paired with a shwartz/black lager.
A boneless skinless pheasant breast hammered flat, Cut into 2" wide strips wrapped in turkey bacon, (Yielding 4-5 rolls)skewer rolls and lightly sprinkle with brown sugar, (Skewer removed prior to serving), grilled over same grill as above. Paired with a cloudy wheat beer.
3 Boneless pork ribs, Seared in a apfelwien reduction, seasoned with a mesquite rub and slow cooked on the edge of above grill. Paired with a rauch/smoked beer.

all above served with herb seasoned baby red potatoes, green beans and a full pint of paired beer in appropriate glassware.

To finish the meal:
- A chocolate mousse served with 6oz of a breakfast/coffee stout
- A cheese cake with caramel topping served with 6oz of a bourbon aged beer

And this is just ONE meal from the top of my head. I could do this all day, for any meal, making it more or less fancy...
