Not Your Father’s Beer This Labor Day
With all the choices available today, beer pairing has become as thoughtful as wine pairing. We asked Foodily Tastemaker TapHunter for their beer pairing tips.
Pair classic Pilseners with lighter foods.
BBQ chicken – Try Candice’s Simple Apricot Glazed BBQ Chicken
Light side salads like this fresh Caprese Salad from Buddy Valastro, The Cake Boss
Salmon – Always a favorite as a lighter alternative to steaks. This is a great recipe from Kewl Bites
Bratwursts – Combine Brats with beer for the perfect grilled dish. Grilled Beer-cooked sausages by Sunset
Ask your local bottle shop or speciality grocery store for these widely available beers – Trumer Pils, Victory Prima Pils, Oskar Blues Mamas Lil Yellow Pils. Pilseners are crisp, clean and refreshing.
So you’re probably asking “what about burgers, what beers pair well with burgers?” Pale Ales are great. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Stone Brewing Co Pale Ale are deep in amber color, delicate hop aroma with a rich maltiness that pairs well with a classic BBQ burger and cheddar cheese.
