Whether it’s watching a game, going out with friends or hosting a BBQ, beer and food go well together. If you’re a beer drinker, foods that pair best with your sudsy beverage of choice are real game changers. Here are some beers and their perfect food pairings, according to the Brewers Association.
1. Blonde ale
Popular blonde ales have a light-bodied taste that go well with lighter dishes like salads, salmon or a chicken pesto dish. Cheese-wise, blonde ale pairs well with mild and herby cheeses like Fontina.
2. India pale ale (IPA)
A craft beer connoisseur’s dream, IPAs pair well with bolder and spicier foods like pork chops, sausages, deep-fried meats and french fries. These flavorful foods won’t let the IPA’s strong taste overwhelm the dish.
A stout and oyster combination is one of the most classic beer pairings. The crisp taste from the beer mixes well with the briny oysters and draws out more complex flavors. Stouts also pair well with foie gras, gouda, and chocolate truffles!
Pilsners pair well with lighter foods like chicken, salmon and salads. If you have a sweet tooth, stick to lighter desserts like lemon shortbread or fresh berries.
Next time you sit down with a hefeweizen, consider ordering some sushi, clams, scallops or lobster. If you’re not a seafood person, goat cheese and strawberry shortcake are two sweeter alternatives.
