Default Hookah + Beer

I just wanted to start off by saying that I enjoy a good beer almost more than hookah. But to branch off, what does everyone think about pairing hookah with beer?

Personally I've looked for combos that would work. Like a good stout with a coffee flavour, some Roohafsa with a nice tripel, or even a good ipa with some floral jasmine or rose.

What are you guys' thoughts or trying to pair a beer with the smoke?

I know theres already threads but just got back from the bar and am too lazy to do a search at the moment. I would love to try some Nak cinnamon with some goldschlager, but too damn poor to afford the drank at the moment.

Right now I'm enjoying a nice Southern Tier 2XIPA with El Basha Caramel and AF Golden Bahrani Apple, tis' ok.

I'm not a big bourbon fan, I'm more of a beer guy. If you could recommend a beer, hookah mix, I'd be all over it.

I'm not apposed to paying money for a good beer but liquor, I'd rather not. Doesn't make sense to most but, oh well. I can't really pick up the subtleties in a good liquor. Beer I can say oh nice oaky, smoked flavor really well.

If your'e a fan of IPA's I highly recommend Ska Modus Hoperandi. It's more of a DIPA, but until I had that I hated IPA's. Now I drink them almost religiously.

I see you are from PA. Do you do Yuenglings much? I grew up in VA and until recently hadn't had it. And being in the mid-west I love that stuff now.

It's harder than hell to get yuengling and other good regional beer in the midwest. There's some really good micro's in the midwest but if I want limited distribution micro's I have to got to CO or back to the east coast. I've really gotten into Stone and other Cali micro brews but never had troeg. Unfortunately, breweries don't like to distribute to the Kansas City area, even though we are one of the biggest cities in the nation.

Most people drink to get drunk or strictly a one drink person. I can't stand drinking like PBR just to get drunk, give me a good alcohol and sit back and enjoy the night. Once you find one that you like, it's like a girl, have as much fun as you can and then move on to the next. It's a never end cycle of love.

Exactly. Enjoy what you have. I used to get drunk all the time and got burnt out. Now 4-5 beers every night is great.

Personally, I don't enjoy beer. (Don't like the bitterness)
But I do like a nice hard cider, which compliments the hookah very well. You can either get some Magner's or if you have a specific flavor of shisha in your bowl such as apple or pear, you can back that up with pear or apple Woodchuck cider.

I'm almost always drinking beer while smoking hookah, it's a natural combination to me.

As far as brand goes, I'm usually drinking regular blue moon, but sometimes it's nice to try to match it with the flavor.
