Does beer or wine go better with sex?

Pairing Beer and SexThank you Alder Yarrow, for a post that takes us quite nicely into the weekend.

In a wine culture obsessed with the idea of pairing, far too few people talk about the best complement to a nice glass of wine: sex.

Yep, I’m thinking beer belongs in this conversation. (As the people filming those commercials for large breweries quite obviously understand.)

Matching wine and sex is a lot easier than wine and food, thanks to the versatile nature of sex. It goes well with just about any wine, provided that the wine is served at the correct temperature (if you need a mnemonic: warm Chardonnay = no roll in the hay).

For beer pairing suggestions I recommend The Brewmaster’s Bed by Garrett Oliver.

    The last time I tried beer with sex, I had to contend with a yeast infection.

    The beer wasn’t much good, either.

    Beer during sex? Not so much. Beer after sex? Arriving at a country pub where you’ve booked a room for the night with a lovely lady, popping upstairs about 6pm and then coming down at 7pm for a pint of well-kept cask ale – oh yes.
