What to eat with four year old sardines?

Not sure what to drink. I'm thinking beer, but what type?

    For me, beer was a better pairing with sardines than wine. I thought the lighter TJ’s Simpler Times Pilsner worked better than the hoppy Eel River organic I.P.A

      Someone sent me this link to a great blog about sardines. I’ve referred to this blog many times on Chowhound but forgot the blogger pairs food and beverages with each can of sardines. Here’s some ideas from that site

      The Castelain Blond Biere De Garde got a 'meh' comment

      Others tried, I'm putting the bad and good to decide what to steer away from

      - Echigo Stout .... nope
      - Spaten Oktoberfest
      - Mahr's Weisse
      - Ninkasi Total Domination IPA,
      - Widmer Brothers' Brewmasters' Release 2009, Belgian Style Ale
      - Beer Here Mørke pumpernickel porter
      - Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew smoked barley wine
      - Nøgne Ø Tiger Tripel abbey tripel
      - San Migs Pale Pilsen and Dark Lager
      - Tsingtao
      - Tecate
      - "Simpler Times" lager,
      - Full Sail Slipknot Imperial IPA
      - Ninkasi Total Domination IPA,

      Hmmm ... it seems IPA's might work. Maye that lager from TJ ... off now to shop
