Wow. That sounds fantastic, Niquejim!

Not much for beer, though an ice cold Corona on a Mexican beach is wonderful with some fish tacos and/or ceviche. Heinekin tasted outstanding in Dutch St. Maartin with just about anything!

I really like a shandy (half beer, half lemonade or ginger beer) with Indian food.

I like most handcrafted or microbrew beers, in fact I believe we will be visiting a micro brew pub this evening ;)

my fav beers/lagers would be:
asian dishes-tsingtao,singha & sapporo
bbq/roasts-elbow build a rocket boys ale
casseroles/stews-theakstons old peculiar
charcuterie-peroni gran riserva/brewdog punk ipa(ice cold)
fish/seafood-peroni,birra moretti,messina,san miguel(ice cold)
talking about brewdog,they are a scottish ipa brewery formed in 2007 by a couple of guy's in their 20's to challenge conventionality they brew the strongest ale in the world -brewdogs triple frozen "tactical nuclear penguin" 32%abv(similar strength to your average scotch/gin etc)
BrewDog Warning


This is an extremely strong beer, it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.
Punk Ipa:
This is not a lowest common denominator beer.
This is an aggressive beer.
We don't care if you don't like it.
We do not merely aspire to the proclaimed heady heights of conformity through neutrality and blandness.
It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate the depth, character and quality of this premium craft brewed beer.
You probably don't even care that this rebellious little beer contains no preservatives or additives and uses only the finest fresh natural ingredients.
Just go back to drinking your mass marketed, bland, cheaply made watered down lager, and close the door behind you.
BrewDog: Beer for Punks.
BrewDog is about breaking rules, taking risks, upsetting trends and unsettling institutions but first and foremost, great tasting beer.
i'll drink to that lads!

LOL The disclaimer on the Punk IPA is reminiscent of a similar disclaimer found on Arrogant Bast**d Ale made by Stone Brewing in California. They produce some mighty good ale as does Rogue Brewing in Oregon, the makers of Dead Guy Ale (and many others).
I wonder...Do you reckon it is available on this side of the Atlantic?

Niquejim: Knowledgeable & Super Post

Buon Giorno,

Firstly, though I find my palate affinities via the grapevine, there are some cuisines that pair with Beer that I enjoy too ...

Mexican for example: Mexican Black Beer, for eg: Cerveza Negra Molido and Dos Equis Dark ...


German Würsts : St. Paulie Girl Black Beer

UK Pub : There are several that Harry mentioned that I have had when we have spent wkends in the UK ...

Irish Pub Grub : Guiness Stout and Red Kilkenny

Indian : a chilled Indian blonde beer is a refreshing accompaniment to vindaloo !

Spanish Tapas: St. Miguel, Mahou Black or Gallega

Desserts: Belgian Semi sweet varieties ... ( Lovely with a fresh Lime drizzled ) ...

I had written an article about ales, beers / lagers ( the subtle differences between these terms ) and stouts ... When I was last in the UK, we had gone to a couple of breweries ... Very interesting ...

I shall see if I can dig up the ones, we had taste tested during the last flight over and write a 2nd post for all to read.

Have nice wkend.
Margi.

Dislike beers like- American Budweiser & Pabst, wheat beers, Peroni, and Corona.
Enjoy beers like- Sam Adams Boston Lager, many British ales, Labatt Blue, Troegenator, Paulaner Salvator, and Kulmbacher Mönchshof.
I prefer draught beer over bottled and bottled over canned, but the draught beer must either be drawn from a tap that is properly maintained or, better yet, directly from the keg.
