I love pairing beer with dessert. Although many people would drink beer with any other dish, they'd be surprised if you brought out beer with after-dinner sweets. But the flavors inherent in beer—caramel, grain, chocolate, fruit, and even baking spices—make it a wonderful partner for whatever post-meal treat you can devise.
