Well, you weren’t very enthusiastic about the concept of beer and food matching. I asked the question, and the answers were:

It enhances the appreciation of both: 5 (11%)
It is a load of pretentious nonsense: 39 (89%)

It may have its place in esoteric gourmet circles, but given that most beer is not consumed with food, and even when it is, it is a question of “does Unicorn or Hatters go best with ham & eggs?”, it is a complete irrelevance to the appreciation of beer, and those beer writers who bang on about it are guilty of being pretentious twats.

To my mind, as someone who can’t do with red wine in any form, the concept of wine and food matching is equal bollocks.
