Was your fantasy football team lackluster this year??
Well, now’s the time to impress your friends with some amazing Beer & Food Pairings for today’s big game.
The three most common pairing interactions are complement, contrast or cut. Take a look at what goes into each dish before deciding what interaction will best compliment your food and beer. For example spicy food; IPA will make the food even spicier complementing the food, Vienna Lager will contrast the spiciness with the sweetness of its malt, and Blonde Ale will cut the flavors refreshing your palate from the spiciness.
These are just a few examples of how you can pair one spicy dish with three different beer styles. Below I will give you a few more examples of beers that can pair with some of your big game food.
