Cool, I didn't notice this food area before :)

I love hot enchilada with tabasco meat, corn tortillias and lots of cheese together with rice and a big glass of dark clean crisp fridge cold malty lager! Or two or three beers even, the hotter food the more beer you need :)

I have not tried many ales to food, except weissbier. Does anyone know of any faveourite beers with hot and spicy food?

For hot & spicy food the beer needs to be crisp & not very hoppy IMO. I'd be looking for the beer to "cleanse" my palate of the spiciness so the next bite is more tasty. Thus, a lager generally sounds like a good choice. A steam beer could also be nice.

I hope others will share their favorites too....

Nathan, I should add that I am a "newbie" - what is a "steam beer" I haven't heard that expression before?

I definitley agree it should not be too hoppy. I like low to medium hopped dark lagers the best.

Oh yeah, I'm not supposed to say "steam beer" -- supposedly the Anchor Brewing folks object to its use. California Common is the accepted term.
