Tonight's episode of Top Chef on Bravo involved pairing beer with food. Might be worth checking out, even though the beer selection wasn't exactly stellar.

damn I missed it. I love that show but only catch it on reruns late at night when they play 3 or 4 in a row. What beers did they pair with. Let me guess, a Light Lager, Red Ale, Porter and a Stout?

Seriously Michelob...For a show that uses only the best ingredients then they use Michelob...game over, I give up. If I ever paired a beer with a recipe that I took time and consideration to plan and execute, then I paired it with michelob, I would be laughed at in the culinary world. Why not just use a German Pale Ale or a good American Cream Ale(are there any)

That one guy said "all beer tastes the same to me" and he claims to be a Chef?

Top Chef is my favorite show. Besides It's Always Sunny and Curb your Enthuaism back when I had HBO it's the only show I make an effort to watch when it airs.

None of the beers that I saw were especially strongly flavored; lots of middle-of-the-road, drinkable stuff. Would have been MUCH more interesting to see someone pair an oatmeal stout with some kind of chocolate desert, or an IPA with a real spicy Asian dish.... but then again, I'm an EAC. I could see my wife cringe when they showed the challenge, she KNEW I'm be bitching about it!

I think most of the products where Anhauser's/Michelob. Beside the Red Hook and Hoegaarden, I'm pretty certain they were all those crappy new Michelob products.
