    Beer suggestions

    I have a potentially strange question today fanatics...

    What beer goes best with goat? My family is roasting a whole goat this summer, sort of for my birthday, and I am really curious if anyone here has tried it before and what beer(s) may go well with it. I'm not a huge beer snob, but would like to have something past the Busch/Bud/Coors family of beers.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Beer suggestions

    I would suggest an ale. I'm partial to Goose Island's honker's ale which is readily available in Iowa.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    I dont alway drink beer with my goat. But when I do I drink Shiner Bock, Fat Tire, or Spotted Cow. For some reason I think that is a great beer with BBQ.


    Stay thirsty my fanatic.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Fat Tire was one that came to my mind as well. Really nice amber that should go well with that.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Never tried goat, so I'm not sure what it tastes like. A lot will come down to personal preference. For example, I'd have no problem with Shiner but Fat Tire wouldn't be a good pick for me.

    At the end of the day, I think you could get just about any beer and be happy with it as long as it's one that you liked anyway.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    I'd go for a Gose... Sam Adams has one out right now. It's got a little salt in it and some unique flavors.

    I am a beer snob though...

    This:


    Its got a great flavor, but it goes down easy and would pair well with barbecued goat.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    My go-to "accessible" beer is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Not sure how well it matches up with goat, but it's pretty much my main tailgating beer.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Usually darker meat you would go with a darker beer. I'd go with a brown ale or stout of some sort. Newcastle would be a great choice for something easy to find. I'd suggest Bells Kalamazoo Stout if you can get it.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Having been to a party where goat was served, I suggest a plan b or maybe just a bunch potato chips. Or drink copious amounts of whatever beer you choose before you eat.


    Are you sure Hank done it this way?

    I agree, a brown ale would be a solid choice.

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Would agree that something like a Newcastle Brown Ale would be best. This beer has a smooth flavor with just a little bite. It won't shock the Coors Lite people at your party. This beer will be perfect with Goat (which tastes like chicken. Right?)

    Re: Beer suggestions

    Try these available at your local Costco. One is sure to go with the goat.


    Most people have a cake on their birthday. Having a goat is certainly an interesting choice.
