Why are you making fun of how I talk? ;-) I see you used plenty of butter and didn't thicken it to a paste. Good Job! I would go with the Irish Ale

I vote Irish Ale.

Here's a peek inside my twisted mind: when I think Chowda I think New England delicacy.  And when I think New England I think Boston. And when I think Boston I think Irish. Therefore Chowda = Irish.

Ha! Good "logic". I just think that the hoppier beers wouldn't work. I would only pair thm with more intense flavors. As a matter of fact I don't usually pair IPAs with food so I can use my tastebuds.

Good looking chowda !  I think any but the dunkelweizen or Belgian would pair up nicely. But then, I could be wrong.
