Pairing beer with food and more…
Beer has been paired with food for centuries. The characteristics of body, freshness, sweetness and bitterness in a beer are achieved through the balanced combination of its principal ingredients: malted barley, grains, water, hops and yeast – as well as the way temperature is controlled during fermentation.
There are several ways that beer interacts with the taste of food. A sip of cold beer after tasting spicy or seasoned food, can clean and clear the palate – the beer cutting the flavor of the seasonings. With fried dishes or those prepared with cheese, the lightly bitter flavor of beer has the same effect. The more neutral the flavor of the beer, without strongly bitter or malty overtones – the better it will be at cutting the flavors of food.
In other instances, beer complements the food’s character – much like wine pairing with food. Strongly malted beers full in body are especially suited to accompany meats and cheeses. Dry and lightly bitter brews complement more delicately flavored dishes – such as Grilled Trout.
Beer can also be selected to contrast simple, hearty flavors such as our Barbecue Ribs or the Peppadew Panini. In these cases, what stands out is usually the taste of the beer. This contrast can amplify the enjoyment of the beer’s exquisite taste.
Craft beers have many styles and flavors to consider. The Brewer’s Association of America recognizes 83 categories of beer style, plus a daunting additional 82 subcategories of beer style in their Great American Beer Festival.
