Indulgence is a sweet morning pastry and a beer to match.

Coffee cake & BridgePort Café Negro

Swap your Joe for a coffee-spiked porter to pair with this cinnamon-topped treat. Café Negro’s roasted java flavor cuts through the buttery cake, while the cinnamon crumble draws out the beer’s caramel sweetness; all together, the roasted coffee, cinnamon and caramel flavors create a harmonious holiday treat. ALSO TRY: Kona Pipeline Porter, Big Sky Cowboy Coffee Porter

Cinnamon Roll & Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale

This gooey, melt-in-your-mouth pastry woos the taste buds with sugar, cinnamon and vanilla frosting. This beer’s alcohol heat subdues the roll’s sweetness, while adding a swift peppery kick. The common ground is in the spice: The cinnamon roll draws out this old ale’s subtle cinnamon notes. ALSO TRY: North Coast Old Stock Ale, Avery Old Jubilation

Croissant & Thomas Hooker Blonde Ale

Preserve the quiet flavors of an airy croissant with an equally delicate cream ale. The beer’s sweet grain is a perfect complement to the flaky croissant’s buttery sweetness; as the croissant soaks up the liquid, the beer’s lemon and honey notes shine through. The bread’s fluffy texture and beer’s soft mouthfeel keep things light on the tongue. ALSO TRY: Sun King Sunlight, Bold City Killer Whale Cream Ale

Bear claw & Delirium Nocturnum

Bear claws are a guilty pleasure that deserve an indulgent brew. This Belgian dark strong’s caramel flirts with the claw’s chocolate and caramel frosting, while luscious dark cherry notes add juicy sweetness to the pastry’s almond topping and filling. Peppery alcohol’s drying heat tidies up the sugary swallow. ALSO TRY: Gulden Draak, St. Bernardus Abt 12

Cheese Danish & Duchesse de Bourgogne

A mouthful of creamy Danish gets a cherry lift from a Flanders red ale. The pastry’s gooey cream cheese muffles Duchesse de Bourgogne’s vinegary bark, turning attention to the beer’s dark cherry notes that soak into the creamy filling. The pastry’s sugary notes keep the pairing playful before effervescent carbonation and tartness sweep the mouth clean. ALSO TRY: Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Red Ale, Rodenbach Grand Cru
