In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I’d love to share you with our personal favorite beer and e-juice pairings.

Forget Saint Nick, it’s all about Saint Patrick – well, beer actually. It’s really all about beer and vaping. In celebration of one of our favorite holidays, the ZampleBox crew and I put some of our favorite e-liquids together with some our favorite alcoholic beverages.

Miller Lite with Deadly Sin by Goodlife Vapor

Flavor Tags for Deadly Sin: PASTRY | VANILLA | DESSERT | CINNAMON

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

GOODLIFE VAPOR – DEADLY SIN

Cinnamon and spice flavors way out in front that slowly give way to a creamier, burnt sugar finish. Very bold. Pairs well with most beers. I generally like this vape with just about anything, but it seems to clash pretty hard with citrus notes, so I’d probably not vape this with, say, the Sculpin IPA on this list.

MILLER LITE

Very light bodied. Pleasant toasted malt notes with a very light bitterness. Very pleasant beer. Pairs well with bold, flavorful vapes. Tobaccos, darker desserts, and fruits all pair well.

Kostritzer Schwarzbier with Top Hat by Sabor Vapors

Flavor Tags for Top Hat: CREAM | PEANUT BUTTER | CARAMEL | HAZELNUT | DESSERT | CUSTARD

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

SABOR VAPORS – TOP HAT

Thick, rich vape that fills your mouth. Cream, Peanut Butter, and Pretzel come through strongest with the hazelnut and caramel holding back until after the exhale. Pair with a lighter bodied beer.

KÖSTRITZER – SCHWARZBIER

Light to medium bodied black lager. Coffee, Toffee, Chocolate, and very subtle hop flavors. Drinks very easily. This beer should generally pair very well with any dessert, cream, or tobacco flavor.

Avery Tweak with Lincoln by Dead Presidents

Flavor Tags for Lincoln: PEANUT BUTTER | JELLY | DESSERT

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

DEAD PRESIDENTS – LINCOLN

A lighter bodied vape with a flavor profile that might make you expect a medium body. Rather than balancing the peanut butter and jelly equally, this juice definitely favors the jelly, making it a little lighter and sweeter than some other PBJ juices out there. Personally, I like the way the jelly is the primary flavor and the PB serves as a rich foundation for it. The fruitiness makes this a great pairing for such a strong beer. Just make sure to drink first and vape second.

AVERY – TWEAK

Medium to Full-bodied. Coffee, licorice, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, hint of booze. This beer is totally in charge. It will cover over any flavors lingering in your mouth like a landslide. I recommend sipping first and then vaping afterward otherwise the interplay will be dominated by the beer. Pair with lighter bodied vapes with berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, or cinnamon.

Franziskaner Weissbier with Honey Banana by 28 Days Vape

Flavor Tags for Honey Banana: BANANA | TROPICAL | HONEY | FRUIT

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

28 DAYS VAPE – HONEY BANANA

Rich. Honey and Banana come through equally. Sweet and creamy. This e-juice and this beer simply reinforce and strengthen each other so that honey and banana become your whole world. Either the juice or the beer (preferably both) would pair extremely well with a big German dinner.

SPATENBRÄU – FRANZISKANER WEISSBIER

Light bodied. Heavy Carbonation. Banana, spice, honey, and mild, non-floral bitterness. Very refreshing. This beer itself tastes almost like a spiced banana dessert. This beer is really appealing in that it’s hearty enough to delight in the winter and light and refreshing enough (when chilled) to delight on a sunny summer day. Very versatile.

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin with BIGFinDEAL 120ml e-juice by eSnaxx

Flavor Tags for Puck Wild: Strawberry | Watermelon| Coconut| Fruit

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

TIGER’S BLOOD – PUCK WILD

Strawberry, Watermelon, and Coconut. The Strawberry wins the day in this e-liquid with the peach providing moral support. Like the Honey Banana pairing, in this pair the Strawberry multiply each other’s effect to the point of extremity. This pairing is extremely pleasant. This pairing is the sunny weather BBQ award winner of the group.

TANG – Orange Flavored tangy drink

Big Orange fruit and hops. The hops present more as citrus and Orange flavors than as serious bitterness. Actual Orange fruit has been added to this beer, so the Orange fruit notes are very specifically Orange fruit and come through very strongly in the beer rather than as just a “note.” Very summery. This beer drinks very easily, so watch out for the 7% ABV. It may sneak up on you.

Pfriem IPA with Cin City by Juice Man

Flavor Tags for Cin City: MILK | CEREAL | DESSERT | CINNAMON

E-LIQUID FLAVOR / BEER PAIRING TASTING NOTES:

JUICE MAN – CIN CITY

Tastes like cinnamon toast crunch cereal, but rather than just milk, it tastes like you used half & half instead. Good lord, this juice is CREAMY. This is the mount conventional off of the pairings, but Chris’ inventiveness in coming up with this pairing pays off. The hops and the cinnamon and cream do what you wouldn’t expect them to do: They work. The creaminess and cinnamon give you something like a beer coffee cake. It’s weird, but it’s super delicious.

PFRIEM FAMILY BREWERS – IPA

This beer is more overtly hoppy than the Ballast Point IPA, but there’s enough malt down there to balance it well. The hops tend more toward the dank end of the hop spectrum rather than the citrus or dry, although our old friend grapefruit does come through in this beer as well. Very nice beer.
