Quick Note On Beer And Food Pairings



It may seem like a good idea at the time, but trust me, the lingering effects of combining Stone Double Bastard with a big bean burrito (especially Alberto's) are not pleasant. However, if you are for some reason already armed with these, then you may be safe.

Too funny! Thanks for the warning. SN Celebration can be toxic, too, with Mexican. Didn't the Double Bastard overwhelm the bean burrito? A carne asada may have paired better - but your stomach may not agree!

Ok it wasn't exactly a "pairing" since I had the Double Bastard around 7pm and the burrito at midnight. But basically they paired up in my intestines to create a monster. I can see the same thing happening with either SN Celebration or any hoppy beer. Those hops seem to really create the fumes the next day.

I think it may only work with a Santana's burrito.

I don't think this would be a beer-food pairing at Rosemary's.
