If you ask John Michael Montgomery what goes good with beer, he’ll tell you the following:

It goes good with beer and the Friday night atmosphere. Of this cross-town bar where the cars all get steered to. And it goes hand-and-hand with my crazy buddies and this three-piece band, An’ the pretty girls and the games we play and the smoke and mirrors: Yeah, troubles come, but they go good with beer.

Well, this probably isn’t what you expected to find when looking for something that went well with beer, but the truth is, a lot of things go good with beer and not just food.

Yes, of course there are the foods that we love to eat that go good with beer. You’ve got your classic beer and pizza combo. Can anything even come close to the taste of an ice cold beer and a hot slice of pizza? For that matter, even a cold slice of pizza and beer is pretty good. For some guys, that’s pure heaven.

Then there’s peanuts and beer. That’s why they sometimes call them beer nuts. You can walk into your corner bar, especially if it’s one of them home town doggie places, if you know what I mean and just ask the bartender for some beer and nuts. He’ll know just what you want. Or, if you’re too lazy to leave the house, just have a jar of those Planters nuts laying around, open up a nice cold brew and have yourself a picnic. For some guys, that’s all they need.

But beer is not just about what you eat with it. Beer can be used as a very useful tool for picking up women. A typical scenario is you’re at a bar, you order your drink and there’s a cute gal sitting two stools over. You turn to her and in your most macho voice you say to her, “Can I buy you a beer?” Now if you were a real sophisticated guy you’d probably ask her if she wanted a drink. But offering her a beer is so much more manly and raw-at-home-boyish.

Then of course there is the beer as used for a prop when playing pool. You’re standing there with your pool cue in your hands while you’re buddy is running the table on you and the last thing you want to do is look like a loser of a dork, so you kind of lean on your cue stick, cock your body to one side, pick up that nice cold long-neck bottle (has to be long-neck) and take a nice, slow, long guzzle. You’ll look so cool, people will think you’re winning.

And finally, beer is just great for sitting in front of the TV and watching your favorite episode of NYPD Blue. Has to be a manly type of program. None of that girl stuff. While you’re doing this, you lean back, spread your arms across the back of the couch and let out a good loud…Well, you get the picture.

Beer. It goes well with just about anything.
