I appreciate the responses and I understand that beer might not be the ideal pairing, but that is out of my control at the moment. This brewery does not have the licenses to serve hard liquor.
Sounds like big, bold, styles will be key. I think I will stick to something like a smoked Doppel and maybe a Wee Heavy. The brewery has a few stouts on tap, as well as a barrel aged one, so that should work too.
