I went to one recently where they paired Goose Island's Sofie with a shellfish chorizo and some grilled octopus and leeks. Never in a million years would I have thought to pair Mexican style sausage with Belgian style beer, but it was one of the best pairings I've ever had.
Walter likes lingonberries, too? I thought that was just the nihilists.
The only thing worse than dumping beer is serving beer you should have dumped.
