Summer Beer Pairings

Summer is here. It’s time to jump in the pool and feel that cool refreshing water hit your skin. After you find yourself out of the water, you’re hungry and ready for the perfect brew. Your palate will be salivating at the thought of these dishes and their pairings. Are you ready for this?

You can never go wrong with good barbeque. Beer + Barbeque = Beer-beque. Absolute perfection.

The perfect meals that we find go well with any good brew are:

-Pork Chops
-Steak
-Burgers

Do you agree? Luckily, a few of our breweries that we distribute for have created a few suggested pairings!

A fan of Heavy Seas Smooth Sail? This refreshing American wheat ale, brewed with lemon and orange peel is suggested to pair with tantalizing grilled white fish, citrus, wild rice, and of course: BBQ.

How about Kona Gold Cliff IPA? A brew we just recently began distributing has a delicious suggestion for a great pairing. “Have a Gold Cliff IPA with smoked pork, grilled ham, or chicken sausage to make any meal a luau. It even goes well with dessert. Try it with a piece of moist golden cake and you will have a pineapple upside-down experience that is sooo ‘ono (delicious)!”

We can’t pass up that offer. Who’s ready for that delicious meal? (We’ll take everything please.)

And, last but not least Bell’s Brewery has created their very own recipe to pair with their brew: Porter! Check out their “Porter Beer Cheese Soup” concoction here. And for dessert, they recommend vanilla bean ice cream.
