Chicken, Waffles + Craft Beer

Oh my yes. This time on The Flavor Project, Fried Chicken on buttermilk waffle with whipped butter and jalapeño honey, from Acme Southern Kitchen in downtown San Diego. What craft beer goes best with this Southern specialty?

Russian River Pliny the Elder would be my choice! Any nice DIPA (Double IPA) would work just as well, I just really love Pliny! The bitterness of the beer will calm the sweetness of the honey yet accentuate the heat of the jalapeño.
