BioWare co-founder talks beer and videogames

Feb 02 // Kyle MacGregor    @DtoidKyle

Taste the high country!

Before you head out to your local barcade this evening please take a moment to heed the sage advice of BioWare co-founder turned beer connoisseur Dr. Greg Zeschuk. Joystiq recently sat down with the good doctor (at a pub, I hope) to chat about the good doctor's latest project: a documentary series about craft beer. Naturally, the discussion turned to videogames. 

"Oh, that's got to be a real contemplative one," Zeschuk said when asked what type of brew would be best paired with an adventure game. "I think that'd be a sipper, so probably the biggest sipper type of beer is a barleywine. You sit back in your velvet jacket and sip your barleywine and play a point and click adventure."

The full article is an entertaining read, as Zeschuk delves into several such combinations. It doesn't, however, quite touch on every pairing under the sun. Is survival horror best enjoyed with a side of saison? How about some stout with that strategy game? Do you have a favorite medley? Let us know.
