    Howdy all, discovered one last night that really made me appreciate my taste buds. Was having a nice bowl of L.J. Peretti mix no. 333 and trying my very first Blue Moon Blackberry Tart Ale. Geez-O-Pete!, the combo of that smoke and that beer was something special.

    Blue Moon puts out a "Brewmaster's Seasonal Sampler", which has the aforementioned Blackberry Tart Ale... a wheat ale brewed with blackberries. Also included: Agave Nectar Ale, a blonde wheat ale crafted with agave nectar. Belgian White, a belgian style wheat ale brewed with coriander and orange peel. Rounder, a Belgian style pale ale crafted with hibiscus and orange peel. Short Straw, a farmhouse red ale brewed with hibiscus, coriander and white pepper.

    I'm about to go try some Mac Baren's HH Old Dark Fired and Short Straw. Hopefully that combo will wow me too.

    So.... what tobacco/drink combos have really made you surprised and happy?

    I actually prefer my tobacco and tea. Irish Oak and Twining's Irish Breakfast Tea work well. Green tea and EMP also works well.

    ODF and Short Straw was a pretty decent combo, but then again.... ODF and just about anything will be good.:bing:

    Anything I smoke goes well with home brewed sweet iced tea. When I drink bourbon I prefer a nice vaper. CH goes great with coffee.

    B&B (Brandy & Benedictine) is about the best for me.

    Anything is great with coffee and I find that a virginia/turkish blend smokes well with Earl Grey.

    Mixture 79 and Pepto Bismol should work.

    On a serious note......any tobacco and a cup of coffee. I have to agree with Smokey Tom, even if he does dress funny.

    yes, good coffee goes with most pipe tobaccos. I like starting the day with really strong coffee and a bowl of what ever tobacco I'm into at the time.
