How to Pair Beer with Your Food ….

I ran across this article on Life Hacker about Pairing Beer with your food.

Here is the cheat sheet:

  • Pale Ales – Salads, light appetizers, fish and seafood
  • India Pale Ales (IPAs) – IPAs can stand up to a little more richness and flavor. They can go well with things like pulled pork, pizza, and fried chicken, as well as lighter salads and seafood dishes. And if you like heat, try an IPA with spicy food – the hoppiness really pumps up the spice quotient!
  • Hefeweizens and Wheat Beers – Fruit dishes, dinner salads, grain salads, and desserts made with warm spices (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg).
  • Amber Ales – Ambers are a good middle-of-the-road beer and go well with just about anything: burgers, grilled cheese, roast chicken, soups and stews
  • Stouts and Porters – Barbecue, stews, braised dishes – any kind of meat dish, really. Also rich desserts with chocolate and espresso flavors.

  1. Comment by Sarna Marcus: Very cool, Becky. Thanks! I tend towards IPA’s and didn’t really understand how they differ from Ambers and Pale Ales. I particularly like hanging at Dogfish Head pub in Rehoboth Beach off-season and getting a flight of five kinds of brew. Will be going in a couple of weeks!
