Sully (as he is know to TBN fans) suggests pairing 21A's Bitter American with his Mom's Super Nacho recipe (provided below) which he proudly proclaims is the best he has ever had. Sully thinks this pairing is perfect for watching football because you can enjoy a few Bitter Americans(a session IPA @ 4.4% ABV) and not get too beat-up. Oh, and the nachos are the perfect finger food no to mention delicious.
If you have another pairing suggestion for Bitter American or any other 21A beer please leave it in the comment section below.
