I found this beer pairing suggestion while I was researching food pairings for Harpoon Brewery. This is a great suggestion because the malty backbone and fruity esters create a resonating base layer which ties these two together. Then, the sweet potato and bitter hops keep each other in check, not letting the other get too overwhelming through most of each bite. But it's the hops that get the last laugh as they help cleanse the palate alongside the alcohol and carbonation. Your palate is left refreshed and ready for another bite.
