Beer and Books, nothing better

My monthly Flying Fish Brewing Co. email newsletter alerted me to this post over at Amazon Blog's Omnivoracious.

The concept: Pairing beer and books, just as you would with beer and food, or more commonly wine and food.

I haven't read any of the books in the post, but some of the beers are excellent, such as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, or the Flying Fish Hopfish India Pale Ale.

My favorite pairing?

I would also enthusiastically second Grant’s choice for his brilliant Corrupted Sciene: “for the later chapters--where I'm talking about the political, theological and ideological crim --I'd certainly suggest as most appropriate the Californian brew called Arrogant Bastard. This also has the advantage of being a fairly strong beer, as strong as some of the less potent wines, and thus one that efficiently delivers the necessary soothing effect.”

If you have never had Arrogant Bastard Ale, you are in for a treat. Even Beer Advocate loves the beer giving it an A from the site owners and an A- based on over 1300 reviews.
