Red Beans and Monumental Rice

As seen in Beer Advocate 54 by Sean Z Paxton, modified to use a local brand of beer, Port City Brewing Company.

Red beans and rice are a staple of the Creole kitchen that can be served either as a side dish or a main course. This version uses a Porter pork stock to cook the beans, and it's served over a slightly bitter IPA rice. To make this an entrée, add a Smoked Quail on top.
