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.

      So
       
      I'm going to Italy and Greece next week, so I'm grateful for the two years of French I took in high school that will inevitably come in useful not at all, and I know to not go to this place:

      Anywhere else I should be avoiding?

      I'm traveling/backpacking. Sometimes I get bored or stuck in somewhere so I got an Acer Aspire Switch minilaptop/tablet combo to entertain me. I installed Renoise on it because I got the license already. It's a pretty heavy software for the low spec thing but I can make some simple things. So, out of boredom I just bang out some tracks, mostly with the default instruments which I sometimes edit to my own tastes. Decided to upload some of them to Soundcloud for storage and post here.
       
      I'm mastering with my earplug headphones so the mixing is probably pretty terrible..
       
      I'm calling this the CybeerTraveler 2015 series after the facts that it's futuristic and I drink lots of beer.
       
      TL;DR: I'm traveling with a cheapo laptop and making tracks when bored.

      FETTUCINE ALLA PRIMAVERA WITH ASPARAGUS AND SMOKED TROUT
       
      serves two
       
      INGREDIENTS
       
      decent bunch of spring onions
      5-6 asparagus spears (not just the tips)
      couple of decent handfuls of frozen garden peas
      half a pack of dry fettuccine/linguine
      good few sprigs of fresh mint
      good few sprigs of fresh basil
      350g of smoked trout or mackerel
      pint of milk
      grated parmesan
      salt and pepper to season
       
      you'll need a hand blender.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
       
      get a decent kettle of water on the boil.
       
      meanwhile roughly chop the spring onions, asparagus, and half the mint and basil. discard the bottom inch or so of the asparagus spears, which is woody and tough. leave the asparagus tips intact.
       
      get some oil on a medium heat in a decent pan with tall edges, and get the water into a pot and on the boil.
       
      fry the spring onions, add the asparagus after a minute, and then the milk, peas and the chopped mint and basil about two minutes later. season liberally with salt/pepper.
       
      now get the fettuccine cooking, it takes about 11 minutes. season the boiling water liberally with salt.
       
      add about two tablespoons of flour to the veg/milk mix, then stir, reduce to a low heat and simmer. use the hand blender to blend about a third of the veg into the sauce. it'll start to thicken up nicely. after a few minutes, add the flaked fish.
       
      when the pasta is done, strain it but save about half a cup of the starchy pasta water, and add that to the pan with the sauce. simmer for another minute or two. the starcy water will make it all silky and glossy and chef-y.
       
      mix the pasta and the sauce in a big bowl and garnish with the parmesan and the remaining mint and basil.
