Foods and beverages that are not complimentary

Who knew that there was a food that wasn't enhanced with beer. I'm still gagging with every burp after eating raw brocolli and chasing it down with beer Truly disgusting.

Germans make good beer. They taught the world to brew.

OK, back on topic.

I'm Irish, but I still prefer American beer to Canadian or Irish beers.

What were you thinking of to put broccoli in your mouth, anyway? It does not go with anything, it is just grown, or manufactured, or wherever it comes from, to give mothers something to torment innocent children with!

This is supposed to be a thread about beverages that don't compliment foods. So, which food do you spoil with that American Beer

It's called roughage. Good for the colon. No one said staying healthy meant eating tasty food.

Irish whiskey is far superior to Canadian whisky.

But I can't say that I have ever eaten something that's been spoiled by beer of any origin.

I don't like beer with food all that much. Broccoli would be super gnarly!

Fish and Chips practically require beer.
Buffalo wings practically require beer.

Everything else I'd rather wash down with water or wine (or coffee with sweets). I don't even like pizza with beer.

Apparently you're not human ... and yes, broccoli (thanks for the correct spelling) with beer is super gnarly.

I've only eaten one thing that was complimentary.

However, I've eaten many complementary things, as well.

It's actually not bad. Not good, but not bad either.

Pig snout tacos and a soda drink. They gotta be with something sweet like coffee or a non-carbonated fruit drink in the summer.
