Beer & Food Pairing Guide

A list of beer and food.

I’ve been doing Beer Profiles since I first started FBS and one common theme between them all has been suggested food pairings. It occurred to me the other day it might be nice to have all of the beers and their food pairings listed in the same place so now I give you the Food. Beer. Stuff. Beer and Food Pairing Guide or FBSBAFPG for short…

As I continue to write up more beer profiles the list will be updated so bookmark for later. Click the picture for the full profile. For more general recommendations by beer style scroll down past the table for links with good advice.
