A Beer Summit is a great idea. Cooling tempers and finding common ground over a few cold ones? It's brilliant. (As a New Yorker, it's tempting to wonder whether the fracas in Albany might have ended more swiftly over a few six packs.)
From the Wall Street Journal to NPR to the webcomic xkcd, it seems that people have more to say about the beer choices at the Beer Summit than the story behind the Summit itself. But nobody's talking about food pairings that would turn the Summit into a fun, relaxing dinner.
