Thanks to a massive craft revolution over the last two decades, beer is no longer second fiddle to spirits in the cigar world.
Anyone who’s smoked a cigar with a couple of watery cans of Whatever Light knows that most beer can’t hold its weight against a smoke, but once you get above a certain darkness factor or number of IBUs, it’s game on.
Yes, single malts and cognac may come to mind first, but the world of pairings is more varied and exciting with beer, including dark beers like the new 2015 Stone Brewing Imperial Russian Stout.
