The best things in life come in twos, so don’t leave that cocktail lonely. For a true Baja meal, pair the Afternoon Delight with barleymash’s All-In Iron Fries, topped with plenty of applewood smoked bacon, chili-braised short rib, ale-braised pork shoulder, pepper jack beer-cheese sauce, and fresh chilis. This twist on the popular so-cal dish, Carne Asada Fries is the perfect companion to their spicy margarita. Take our word for it.
