For each beer, we were given suggestions about food pairings, but my forum-going friend Dana and I were rogue beer-food-pairers, trying everything with everything. We tried each beer with the sweet, the salty, the spicy, the pickled-y. Every bite was an experience.
Jessica’s most memorable pairing suggestion was to have Solidarity with the roasted, garlicky tomato–that it created a sort of Bloody Mary type of experience, with the salt and garlic mixing with the wheat-iness of the beer. Try it!
If you’re a beer-loving lady, stop by the next Women’s Forum. You’ll learn a lot and meet some cool beer women folk. But remember to RSVP.
These are getting popular (and crowded)!
