Cigars and Craft Beer

Since the beginning, cigars were associated with Bourbon or Scotch whiskey. Cigars and craft beer are also possible to pair well. There are many combinations to choose from. You will discover what you like with a little bit of research.

There is a general rule that can be used to match cigars with craft beer. It is to match the body and type of cigar with a beer with similar characteristics. Pair milder cigars and lighter beers with full-bodied, more robust beers. This helps to keep one from being overwhelming the other.


An American Lager will pair well with a mild cigar wrapped in Natural. A robust Maduro cigar is a good match for a spicy Indian Pale Ale. It is possible to experiment with pairing cigars and beer based on common flavors. A stout that has hints of espresso and chocolate could be matched by a cigar with similar flavours. You may enjoy strong, strong, and boozy beers in the winter months. You might choose crisper beers that have a more uplifting character when the weather is warmer.


These simple rules are the foundation of these pairings.


Pairings of Cigars and Craft Beers


Oliva Serie X Melanio was voted Cigar of The Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2014. It received an impressive 96 rating. The wrapper adds a sweetness and depth to the caramel flavors. This amazing combination creates a smooth smoke. Indian Brown Ale is a mix of Scotch Ale and India Pale Ale. Although it is complex in its nature, it can be used in many ways. Dogfish Head Brewing Co. brewed Indian Brown Ale with organic brown sugar and aromatic barley. This enhances the caramel notes and earthy-sweet elements in the Oliva Series V.



The Rocky Patel 1990 Vintage Series has a medium to full-bodied flavor with the predominant flavors of caramel, toasted nuts and chocolate. Young's Double Chocolate Stout has a smooth mouthfeel and will create an exceptional sensation for your taste buds. Rocky Patel 1990 Vintage's creamy texture complements the beer's rich and velvety flavor. Their chocolate flavors complement each other in an amazing way. Delish!



Padron Maduro 3000 is a great pairing for the more accessible, full-bodied character an IPA has. The Maduro has a sweet taste with notes of vanilla, chocolate, vanilla, and baking spices. Stone Brewing Co.'s bold, creamy smoke pairs well with the Stone Mocha IPA. This IPA is highly regarded by craft beer lovers. It's smooth and complex, with lovely notes of coffee and chocolate. This combination will excite anyone who loves bold flavors!



Porter is similar to stout in its origin, but it has a lighter taste due to malted barley rather than the roasted barley in stout. Porter retains a rich and well-rounded texture but has a less intense flavor. Pipeline Porter by Kona Pipeline Porter has a smooth, dark flavor with a distinctive roasted coffee aroma. It also contains an earthy complexity that comes from the diverse blends made of malted barley. The Gran Reserva Hemingway Between the Lines is rich and toasty, with intense flavors of coffee, nuts, and chocolate. The cigar's earthy sweetness is softened by the subtle chocolate and coffee hints of the brew. This is a truly enjoyable pairing.



Montecristo Classic #1 is made from the finest Connecticut shade wrappers, Dominican binder, and long filler tobaccos. This smooth smoke is smoky and has a hint coffee flavor. Goose Island's Four Star Pills is a balanced pilsner that has both hops and malt character. The hops' floral and herbal tones are complimented by the sweetness of the toasted cracker malt. It pairs well with the No. It's a classic match that will give you a quick boost to your senses.



Esteban Careras Mr. Brownstone Nicaraguan Habano has a lightly oily, brown Natural Nicaraguan Habano Wrapper with an intricate Binder from Jalapa (Nicaragua). The filler tobaccos are from Nicaragua's Jalapa, Condega and Esteli regions. Cubanesque in taste and depth, Mr. Brownstone Nicaraguan Habano goes well with American Lager. Anchor California Lager is made with Anchor's own lager yeast, Cluster, and two-row California barley. The all-malt lager is well-balanced with a balanced aroma, balanced flavor and smooth finish. Anchor California Lager is light and crisp, just like American lagers should be. This is a great pairing with Mr. Brownstone's Nicaraguan tobaccos. This is an amazing pairing!
