Discover the Best Cigars to Pair with Your Favorite Beer Styles
Beer is awesome. Cigars are awesome. It makes complete sense to enjoy both at the same time, right? Right.
Cigars have always been an excellent complement to whiskey, rum, and bourbon and that will remain the same forever. But the flavors and aromas packed tightly within a cigar’s slender body also pair well with various beer styles as well. With this in mind, Spoonwood Brewing has joined forces with McKeesport’s Dirty Dog Cigar Shoppe to host a special Beer & Cigar Pairing called ‘Smoke Em If Ya Got Em’ this Friday night, July 1st at 7:00pm on their patio in Bethel Park.
The crew from Dirty Dog are putting together a unique pairing menu and will be on hand with a variety of cigars for you to purchase. They’ll also be offering education surrounding each cigar and give you the lowdown on why they pair so well with specific beer styles.
On the beer end, Spoonwood’s popular Smoke & Oats Smoked Amber Ale will make its illustrious return to the tap rotation. Without question, a smoked beer paired with a fine cigar simply can’t miss! You’ll also be able to pair any of your Spoonwood favorites with a cigar of your choosing.
Spoonwood will also be tapping a special barrel-aged selection: Hydra Slayer, a hoppy red ale, aged in a Wigle Bourbon barrel. Stay close to PCBN and Spoonwood’s Twitter accounts for further updates as the event approaches.
