I am planning a party for September 29-ish in which I celebrate the late philosopher, Miguel de Unamuno's birthday. He was a walking contradiction and in order to honor his memory, I looking for recipes of beers that come off as rather contradictory. I realize that any beer made well cannot be a contradiction onto itself ( really just more creative), I am just trying to have some fun. Let met start of with an example: Imperial porter made with lager yeast. I am sure that such a beer is not really any sort of shocker, most especially to you guys, but for me personally, I rarely think of a Imperial beer or a porter being made with lager yeast. Thus, it fits the bill for the party. If anyone else has good recipes that fit the above description, I would love to hear about it. I would prefer ale's because the coolest I can brew right now is in the mid 60's, but if you think a lager yest at that temp is worth it, I am game. I'll also take interesting contradictory food ideas as well, even though it is not really what this section of the forum is for.
