Beer Pairings for Smoke More Food Eat More Beer

Here is a list of beer pairings for the event on August 8. For this event it would be optimal to go to a place that offers mix'n'match six packs of beer. The Party Source offers single beers in their cooler section. I have highlighted the beers they have available at the party source. One twelve ounce beer should suffice for two or three people. Diners should bring one of each of the following:
1. Lager
2. Pilsner
3. Smoked Beer
4. American Brown Ale
6. American Porter
5. Stout (Chocolate)

Here are the beers available at the Party Source that are sold in singles for each category.

1. Lager - Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, Christian Moerlein Lager House

2. Pilsner - Konig Pilsner, Wurzburger Hofbrau, Czechwar, Pilsner Urquell, Brooklyn Pilsner

3. Smoked Beer - Shiner Smoke House, Stone Smoked Porter (warm beer aisle), Rogue Chipotle Ale (this will work for the dish as well and is located with the warm beer)

4. American Brown Ale - Abita Turbodog, Brooklyn Brown, Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

5. American Porter - Great Lakes Edmound Fitzgerald Porter, Anchor Porter, Bell's Porter

6. Stout - Bell's Expedition Stout, Sam Adams Imperial Stout, Christian Moerlein Stout, Great Lakes Blackout Stout

The Book that assisted me with the beer pairings is called "The Brewmaster's Table" by Garrett Oliver, who is the head brewmaster at the Brooklyn Brewery.
