The best beers should be a complimentary experience; enhancing your fulfillment of whatever activity you’re doing. At a barbecue or tailgate with friends, they spark conversation instead of forcing your attention on them. They offer depth, complexity, and precise execution when you look for it. When paired with food, they offer rich, complementary flavors without overwhelming your pallet. You can be satisfied after a snifter but continue to enjoy a few more pints.
