We should discuss beers that we like to drink with meals.
I actually did a small taste experiment some time ago where I tried to find the best food and beer combination. I have a couple more but I can't find foreign alternatives to the ingredients.
1. Punk IPA with sushi. You really need some wasabi on the sushi for this combination to work. Also, try to chill the beer almost to the point of freezing for an extra taste experience.
2. Guinness with chÃ¨vre chaud. Put some chÃ¨vre cheese on a piece of white bread, preferably baguette, and heat it in the oven until the cheese starts to colour a little. Eat while warm.
3. Irish Red Ale (pref. Caffrey's) with strong cheese and roasted walnuts. The cheese I'm talking about here is the kind of cheese with a lot of small holes in it and that has been aged for 12-18 months. Put the cheese on top of a slice of white bread, sprinkle some crushed almonds on top and grill in the oven until the bread is crispy.
4. Staropramen (and it has to be a Staropramen) and chili chocolate.
If any of you have any other combinations that you like, please let me know, I've been hoping to do another one of these taste experiments some time.
