Last night we Had venison chops for dinner. I went to the basement to chose the appropriate beer to go with dinner. Stone's Double Bastard Ale was a perfect choice, it complimented the chops beautifully. Pairing beer with food is always fun. There are so many different styles and variations that your choices are endless. If you are interested in this check out a book called:
The Brewmasters Table by Garret Oliver. He explains why certain beers go why certain foods, it's good reading.
Back to the Double Bastard Ale, it comes with a warning on the back:
Double Bastard Ale is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the Worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy this bottle. Instead, leave it for a Worthy soul who has already marticulated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as liquid Arrogance.
