Great Craft Beer & Food Pairings

Living the Brewed Life with Great Food and Beer Pairings

For a long time, the accepted belief was that wine was the superior beverage for pairing with various foods. Beer was just swill that we drank to wash down hot dogs and potato chips at the ball park. But as we all now know, craft beer’s complexity and range has grown leaps and bounds. With this complexity, the spectrum of options for food and beer pairings is infinite. Beer and grub combinations have even grown to encompass breakfast and desserts.

Some of our favorite pairings include:

Buffalo Wings & a Maibock

Apple Streudel & a Hefeweizen

Try Weihenstephan's Hefeweissbier Dunkel
