I'm curious...what is your favorite food complement to beer?

I would think anything greasy and/or salty in general would do. But I'm curious about specific foods in your guys' experience. I'm hoping to get some suggestions and recommendations so I get ideas for this summer.

Tex-Mex and/or seafood, at least tropical/southern coast stuff with Mexican or Caribbean beer. Like Ceviche and Corona. 

 

Fish & chips & ale

 

IPAs & bbq / stuff on grill.

 

light beer and mowing the lawn

 

PBR and pizza

 

malt liqour and hot pockets

 

box wine, netflix & chill 

 

 

[craft beer with fruit notes / cider and oral sex ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Depends on the beer, but generally with lagers, IPAs, etc: Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Laotian spicy stuff or Mexican or Tex Mex. Also sushi

 

With darker beers: steaks, Russian or East European foods like borscht.

I love a cool fresh lager, IPA or maybe a weissbier with Asian food and pizza.

But I find the heavier beers are best enjoyed without food. A good heavy stout is a meal in itself!

kebab (various)

My favourite döner kebab offers trwo different kinds of meat and 4 different sauces (on one döner!), it's the most amazing thing in the world to bite into a huge döner kebab and taste fresh salad and hot meat, hmmmmmmmmm, there is nothing like a good fresh döner kebab + beer

smoked fish. 

 

i lived in san diego for a while and there's a place called "San Diego Fish company" and they make a Tuna jerkey that is the best thing i've ever had w/beer.  amazing. 

 

so, smoked fish.. tuna jerky.. etc. 

 

of course fried things.. things w/tartar sauce.. 

 

also, i've had some things w/murphy's irish stout that were pretty rich together.  things that have phenel in them can be good w/beer. 

 

tacos obviously. 

 

citrusy things like ceviche.

This all sounds good to me! Agree with chips & ceviche, pizza, and salt & vinegar crisps in particular.

I made a Russian potato salad (salat oliv'ye) last week for the first time when my dad was up visiting, which paired nicely with Stella Artois.


Keep 'em coming!

With hoppier stuff I like:

 

Quesadillas, chips & salsa/guac

 

Garlic fries / tots

 

Popcorn

 

Any salty snack really, plus brats / hot dogs

 

Lighter beer:

 

Heavier food. Pizza, BBQ, nachos. Also pairs nicely with Risotto and some pastas if you don't have any wine on hand.

 

There's a bar around here that makes killer Brussels sprouts

 

Stouts:

 

Nothing. A stout is a meal.
