In the world of beverages, there are certain pairing juggernauts that we’re all familiar with: wine and cheese; pop rocks and soda; tequila and regret; and, of course, beer and buffalo wings. Buffalo wing flavors are just as versatile and varied and beer varietals these days, so you can generally find a wing that suits your fancy.
Myself, I can’t stand having messy hands, so I tend to go with the dry rubs and avoid the wings slathered in spicy sauce. When I do eat coated wings, I can consume a restaurant’s entire inventory of wet naps with my incessant wiping and cleaning of my hands and mouth. It’s a fairly embarrassing display of neurotic behavior, so I save the sloppy stuff for takeout.
For those of you with a higher tolerance for food mess and a love of buffalo wings, here are several places in Boulder you should give a go to get your wing fix in your own backyard.
