Just ’cause you’re cruising the convenience store doesn’t mean you have to compromise on taste.
Sour Cream and Onion + Lagunitas Hop Stoopid: Huge grapefruity and resiny hops couple with onion zing and sour cream twang for a flavor blowout. The chip’s onion draws out a kindred onion sweetness in the imperial IPA, while the beer’s caramel malt latches onto the salty potato.
Cool Ranch Doritos + Great Divide Hoss: Spice is twice as nice when you couple Hoss’ kicky rye with Cool Ranch Doritos’ punchy pepper; the chip’s tangy cheese more subtly tugs at the rye’s earthiness, while the beer’s toasted malts round out the swallow.
Fritos + Erzquell Zunft Kölsch: Buttery, majorly crunchy corn chips get a lift from this delicate beer with a similar corn essence. An easy-drinking Kölsch fills the mouth with soft botanicals, but it’s crisp enough to whisk the chip away, leaving behind a faint trail of salt.
Salt and Vinegar + Hinterland Saison: Pucker up: Tart lemon notes and vinegar sourness might make your cheeks tingle at first, but a saison’s vibrant pepper slices through the acidity.
Barbecue + Marin Point Reyes Porter: Sure to be a carnivore’s go-to snack, this chip’s sweet, tangy BBQ coating easily takes on a porter’s roasted, sweet and smoky layers; together, it tastes like a bite fresh from the smokehouse.
