Cigar Advisor published a new article entitled “2016 CA Report: West Coast Beer and Cigar Pairings,” by copywriter Jonathan Detore and beer expert Lauren Lerch. Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigar related to thousands of cigar lovers around the world. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle.
Author Jonathan Detore’s “Cigar Advisor Releases 2016 CA Report: West Coast Beerand Cigar Pairings” is a collaboration piece, soliciting help from Red Rock Brewery’s Lauren Lerch, an avid beer fan and expert. From judging beer tastings to covering a wide array of topics within the micro-brew industry on her website Crafty Beer Girls along with her partner Jenni, Lauren’s experience with west coast beers was an integral part in creating this piece. Throughout the article Jonathan lists some of the best-selling cigars in the industry along with their flavor notes, including such favorites as the Acid Kuba Kuba and Romeo y Julieta 1875. Lauren then gives her interpretation as to which brew made exclusively in the western United States would pair with each cigar.
When asked about the article, Cigar Advisor’s Jonathan Detore said “This was a great way to try and reach the west coast and make them feel included in our community. It’s hard to cover west coast beers in detail considering we call the east coast home. That’s why I think it was really important to get someone from out west to be a part of this, and who better than my longtime friend Lauren? She knows more about beerthan I probably do about cigars, so it was obvious that she would be my go-to person, and luckily she agreed to help. With so many good brews coming out of Colorado, Oregon, and Utah, I’m sure it wasn’t hard for her to pick out some personal winners for her. The trick was really pairing the beers with the cigars and finding those flavor notes that really jive.”
This collaborative piece lists five different cigars with a west coast beer pairing for each. Most brews can be found on a national basis in order to give Cigar Advisor’s audience a chance to sample these recommended beer and cigar pairings for themselves. In addition, Famous Smoke Shop has released a Pairing guide that allows you to pair both liquor and beers with some great cigars — Cheek it out here.
