Am I the only one who finds any kind of carbonated drink irritating to the palate while smoking? I also don't care for anything too acidic, like lemonade, while smoking. Except for coffee in the morning, I usually prefer just good clean water, or occasionally something palate-coating like Arizona Green Tea (which has honey in it). Alcohol is also generally an irritant while smoking, though a smooth, malty, low-carbonation brown ale works well with Burley. Water is just to keep my gob from drying out.

My favorite actual 'pairing' are coffee and pipe while sitting on the porch in the morning, and occasionally a good vintage Fuller's Ale with pipe in the evening (like Beerbeard, my favorite music and pipe guy on YouTube!)

Mostly just curious about others reactions to carbonated beverages.

I agree with your take on carbonated beverages. I enjoy coffee or ice tea with my pipes normally.

Carbonated beverages are out for me too. Only coffee or water with a bowlful, and sometimes bourbon!

Either coffee with heavy cream or Laphroiag 10 with water on the side. Obviously a morning/evening contrast.

My standard, all day any day, is coffee. In the evening I will have a whiskey occasionally.

I have tried coffee time and time again, and since I like my coffee really hot, it doesn’t offer relief or a balanced contrast to the experience of pipe smoking for me. I can handle carbonated water (tonic, soda water) but generally not pop/soda. I do enjoy a nice rye or scotch with a drop or two of water to open up and soften those flavours when I am smoking an English or Balkan. And I personally think homemade sweet iced tea pairs well with VAs, VaPers, and Burley.
