Let’s be honest: pairing beer with meals isn't anywhere near as complex as wine pairing. There are a few guidelines that could be taken into consideration if you so desire, although nobody will chastise you if you don’t pair beer "the proper way". The list of foods could go on and on but check these examples if you want to get an idea.
Maybe you’ve already heard that rice and fish go hand in hand with the lager beer, that there is a love story between stout and chocolate, or that nothing goes better with sausages than a brown ale or two. And it may be so, but in the end, it all comes down to your personal preference and taste. However, if you’re interested in some delicious foods to pair beer with, browse our list and don’t stop there.
8 foods to pair beer with
Risotto is such a versatile dish! There are countless ingredients you can add to the recipe and many ways of cooking it. For this one, we've flavored the risotto with white wine and lemon juice and paired it with some smoked salmon and cream cheese. It may seem a different approach to the classic dish, but we dearly invite you to try!
Serve this mousse straight from the glass. Make it by mixing the melted chocolate with whisked egg whites and yolks. It’s a delicious no-brainer.
This one is hearty, low-carb, not so high in calories and is basically a frittata but with a twist. This time we bake it and we add some flour for the texture. As a final step, we're giving it a tart kick by serving it coated with mustard.
When it’s cold outside, we crave for a slice of steaming roast, right out of the oven! What about you? If you’re going for it, then don’t hold back on the flavors. Buy a rack of lamb and glaze it with 10 special but very compatible ingredients. Pop it in the oven and then enjoy a great winter dinner, safe from the frightful weather!
Who can say no to savory ground beef with melting mozzarella inside? It’s bursting with flavor, cooking is rather easy, and it’s pretty fast as well. Try them as a starter before a large meal, and be ready to share the recipe with all that ask for it!
How can you make the best chicken ever? Wrap it in bacon, cook it into the oven and serve it with French fries. That's what we've done here in this recipe and it turned out delicious. We've also glazed the chicken with our homemade sauce, made of ketchup, garlic, bourbon, and some other special ingredients we're waiting for you to find out.
Eggs and bacon? Not today! Here's an idea that makes bacon even better!
Quesadillas are pretty easy to make. All you have to do is fill a tortilla wrap with a mixture of meat and vegetables. Then you add cheese (that’s what the queso in quesadilla is for). Heat everything in your skillet and you’re good to go. If this is the first quesadilla you’re making, start with this recipe that uses BBQ chicken.
