I think a chocolate chip cookie paired with a good stout that has strong coffee/mocha/chocolate tones would be good. Maybe a peanut butter cookie with a nutty brown ale.

ETA: Duplicate Ari quotes. Wha?

eh... it's not terrible, but it's very inferior to just cookies and milk. At least that was my experience with chocolate chip cookies + stout the other day.

Chocolate chip cookies + oatmeal or milk stout = win.
I haven't dunked the cookies in the beer but I can confirm that they go absolutely fantastic together. I definitely wouldn't say no to almond or other nut cookies with a brown ale either.

And IPA would be harder to pair with cookies. Although maybe if you pair a black IPA with a cheese and olive cookie. If you think that still counts.

What is this non-barley blasphemy? Is this the sort of Pico-Brew that comes out of Micro-Nations like yours?

It's British in origin.

And I just googled for Australian beer stores online and holy **** beer is expensive over there and **** there's little available...

But yeah, try Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout or Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Add some good chocolate chip cookies or perhaps some pancakes for good measure.

You do realise that I've never drunk a glass of beer in my life, right? From the teeny sips I take occasionally*, from someone else's glass when they have gotten a "good beer", I'm never going to start drinking beer, either. Alcohol and cigarettes have heavy "Sin Taxes" on them, to cover the extra health (and in the case of Alcohol, crime, family and social disruption, and street cleaning) costs associated with people using them.


*probably about 15 small sips over my life-time, for a total of 15-30 mLs.

Look, it's just the way I was born, ok? It's innate. From my first contact with beer I just knew I could never enjoy beer as a beverage. If I drank a beer, I'd just be pretending hard, straining to get through it, in order to fit in. And why try go against my nature like that in order to fit in? My real friends could accept me the way I am. I might have been the odd one out sitting round the table in the pub, but no-one cared. We all got on like a house on fire, even when I was drinking gin and tonic with a slice of lime in front of everyone and the world.

Is that a meme? I'm not sure, but you never know around here.

Anyway, I encourage people to drink less beer. Leaves more for me.

I'm not surprised. There's an awful lot of you (in a good way) for alcohol to dilute into. Out of curiosity, how much does it take to drop you under the table?

I don't care much for beer either, Ari. Except Michelobe Ultra with ice. Because then you can't taste it.

I prefer Jameson whiskey.

I'm not a huge beer drinker. It's slowly growing on me, but I just don't like hops. There are plenty of really nice, smooth beers out there that aren't bitter at all. But I feel like it's disingenuous to say I like beer when all I like is the stuff that doesn't taste like all the rest of the stuff people consider beer.

Which beers do you like?


and is it just the hoppy kind if bitter you dislike or do you dislike the chocolate and coffee kind of bitter that stouts have as well?

It's primarily the hoppy bitterness. I've had stouts that I hated, and stouts that weren't too bad. Haven't learned or thought enough about the flavor profiles to say what it was about them I didn't like.

I generally drink Blue Moon if I'm out, because it's popular enough you can get it nearly anywhere. Maybe Hoegaarden. If I happen to be in the mood for something with some bitterness, I might get Leffe.

My dad and brother generally just drink Yuengling, so that's what we typically have on hand.

I've tried a fair number of different types of beers, primarily by going to gastropubs with my sister, but it doesn't really do much good if you aren't paying attention to what each one is...

Try a hefeweizen, preferably Weihenstephaner but Paulaner, Schneider, Ayinger, Hacker-Pschorr, Andechser or pretty much any other German Weissbier will do as well.
The good ones are light, drinkable and have some relatively sweet banana and cloves tastes.
White beers like hoegaarden or blue moon, but better, to try are St Bernardus Wit and Allagash White (from Maine so probably reasonably available).

Something perhaps a little different would be a tripel or a strong pale ale, both Belgian styles that aren't too bitter and Duvel and Westmalle Tripel are fairly widespread and both are excellent. Duvel has a bit of citrusy fruitiness like white beers but it's much stronger and doesn't have the bit of pepper and spices that (good) witbier tends to have. Tripels do have that but they're a little heavier and more warming.

I have had Duvel before, but I ordered it as part of a sampler so **** if I can remember which it was... I'm pretty sure I have the right flavor in my mind, but there's really no way to know until I have it again.
