Watch: Pairing beer and bugs – Heavenly or hellish?
Tim Rodie and I spent a 'pleasant' afternoon eating crickets and grasshoppers... and drinking beer
Food and wine pairings? Great. Food and beer pairings? Definitely. Bugs and beer pairing? Errrm.
It looks as though we'll all be eating insects in the future, so we might as well start early, right? And apparently, 2 billion people around the world regularly eat bugs as part of their diets already.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Hobgoblin's beer and bug snack pack. I decided I needed to try it, but I couldn't do it alone.
In the spirit of it nearly being Halloween, DriveTribe's Tim Rodie and I spent an afternoon pairing beers with Eat Grub flavoured crickets... and after four drinks we decided it would be a great idea to try some unseasoned grasshoppers as well. Watch us being over the top and really dramatic about something a lot of people find incredibly normal.
Yes, we do get a little more tipsy as the video goes on...
