06 Dec Cigars and Beer!
When I think of Cigars I think of Whiskey as a pairing but you can also pair a nice cigar with a great Jolly Fox brew. Here are a few guide lines to think about when you are going to pair a cigar with a beer. (Of course my younger days of Miller Lite and Swisher Sweet while fishing was good)
A Nice Robust cigar goes well with a nice Stout, Porter, or Barrel Aged beer. These beers will hold up and compliment the Cigar. I prefer Padron Anniversary cigar when I am drinking my Barrel Aged Strong Scotch Ale.
A spicey or sharp cigar will pair perfectly with an IPA or DIPA. You can also smoke a robust cigar but I would go with a lighter robust cigar when drinking an IPA.
For Saison’s or lighter beers I would pair it with a lighter cigar, like a Connecticut shade wrapper. They both are light and will complement each other.
At The Jolly Fox Brewery we will have a nice large patio that is partially covered. We will have Cigar Sunday’s and certain designated area’s where you will be able to smoke thought the week on the Patio. I am a Cigar and Pipe smoker but do want to respect other non smoker’s on the patio to try to have a good time by all. Remember a good cigar is always enhanced with a great beverage and great company.
