This time, we take a look at beer and food pairings, testing the accepted “rules,” and maybe discovering a few new pairings of our own.
We like beer--and food! In this edition of our virtual beer tasting, we’ll take a look at beer and food pairings. Are there certain styles of beer that pair well with certain kinds of food? Can you drink an IPA with tilapia? We will test the accepted “rules” of beer pairing, and maybe discover a few new pairings of our own. As always, feel free to taste along with some of our choices, or just join us for some fun and conversation as we try to build our beer knowledge.
Lager – Stella Artois
Belgian Trappist Ale – Chimay Premiere
Hazy Double IPA – Offshoot Retreat
Stout – Highwater Brewing Campfire Stout
Kettle Sour – Laughing Monk Berried Treasure
Chips and hot salsa
Don’t like those choices? Pick some of your favorites from each category, or tell us about your best beer/food pairing.
This month’s beers are available at the Willows Market in Menlo Park.
