favorite beer/food combo?

37 posts in this topic

Hey all, just cracking (well, pouring) the fist beer of the weekend, and wondering if you have any favorite beers to pair with your great meals. Just got done brewing a maple brown ale and man does it go well with a venison steak smothered in sauteed morels... summer beer and grilling season is here, lets hear your favorites!

Tough to beat a Killian's Irish Red or Modelo Negro and.... anything on the ol' BBQ.

Free beer with free food! grin

Actually, I like an icy-cold light beer with freshly caught, beer-battered fish. I like a big mug of stout at Granite City with just about anything on their menu. And my favorite would be an Alaskan Smoked Porter with a wild game feed or a well stocked cheese tray.

It's hard to pass up a beer and a beer boiled brat. Or beer can chicken. Or for that matter, just firing up the grill with a beer in hand.

German brats with a Warsteiner to wash it down... had it in Germany.

How ever I have tasted an awesome Polish beer, but I can't remember the name of it.

A cool, refreshing Schlitz goes with everything especially deep fried cheese curds and a brat just out of the beer hot tub. Woah, did I grow up in Milwaukee?

I just found out tonight that a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat (or two) goes very well with a cinnamon-chipotle dry drubbed moose tenderloin slow-cooked on the charcoal Weber (with a little Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce on the side for dipping). MMMMMMM...

A Leines Honey Weiss and Elk Burger Sliders, with thousand island dressing, on the grill.

(Had some Elk burger in the freezer and decided to make little burgers on little buns a couple of weeks ago and WOW!)

Schlitz....You just made my stomach turn. I had my first Schlitz sinece the 80's a couple weeks ago and thought the first sip was pretty good. After that it got really tough! I think the remarketing effort will be short lived.

Away from the home grill I like a dozen BWW grilled (yes they will grill your wings if you ask) Asian Zing wings with 2 sides of Bleu Cheese and some celery. Top it off with a tall Mich Golden Light.

You complain about Schlitz and then come back with a Mich Golden Light!

There is a reason why Mich Golden Light is the second most popular beer in MN. (I am just not sure why) It does go very well with wings...

I didn't know that about Mich Golden light and I don't like any light beer but I do like your idea of wings and cold beer.

How does one know this? Or where does one learn of such things? I would like to see the list. Beer and wings is good and so is beer and fried fish.

    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
