I was just kind of curious as to any and all of you opnions. I'm sure someone has already asked this before, but if not maybe I can start something new. I

The reason I ask is because my father and have a fly fishing trip coming up soon and I figured I would make a few different brews to enjoy with our catch each evening.

Thank you in advance for any advice or ideas.

Of course, I can only think of what I recently brewed. It is not quite ready yet, but early tastes have been fantastic. It is Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale. Never had the commercial version, but I think the light body and crisp rye character would go well with trout.

Two hearted! It has a trout on the label and is named after the two hearted river which is famous for fishing, Hemingway wrote about it.

I think might just have to give two hearted a shot. I wasn't sure if I could get it in Iowa but a quick check on the website says otherwise. I may very well just thaw out some of the trout from last year and see how it matches up. Works out even better for me since my wife can't stand beer and hates the taste of fish.

Oh yeah! Some Two Hearted and a mess of Morel mushrooms would go great with fresh trout!

It depends on how you plan on seasoning it. What are your plans?

I support these opinions.

Exactly....the pairing would be more about the seasoning/sauce than the flesh of the trout.

I totally agree. If the trout is just pan fried with nothing on it, a hoppy beer or a stout will overwhelm and you won't taste the fish one bit.

If pan fried and unseasoned, I'd go for a Kolsch. Seriously.
