Elysian Brewing Company's The Mens Room:
This beer pairing works because the subtle caramel-like flavors of the malt resonate with the sweet unagi glaze.

Paired with: Eel Sushi:
You may want to go the easy route and place an order to go (that is what I would do) but if you're into rice sticking to your fingers instead of the Nori, then here's a recipe for you!
Elysian Brewing Company's: The Immortal IPA:
This is a contrasting beer pairing that everyone will love. The hop flavor and bitterness, the alcohol and the carbonation all do their part to cleanse your palate. The magic of this pairing, though, is in the citrus flavors of the hops. No need for a squeeze of lemon. The hop flavors will provide that crisp, citric counterpoint instead.

Paired with Smoked Salmon:
Can you think of anything more Northwest? I can't and I love NW salmon no matter how it is prepped.
Elysian Brewing Company's Dragonstooth Stout:
This beer pairing focuses on the resonating dark chocolate/coffee notes the beer and the dessert share. The raspberries are a delightful palate cleanser that complements the beer's roasty flavors.

This pairing is probably the most common. Pairing big beers with roasted coffee/dark chocolate flavors and velvety mouthfeel with brownies is a no- brainer. But this recipe takes a turn with the addition of raspberries. The divine tartness of a raspberry adds the perfect counter point to such a rich dessert and beer.
