Here are some suggested food and beer pairings based on the six main beer flavor categories and common food categories. This guide can help you plan your next formal event or backyard party. A general rule of thumb: heavier, more robust beer pairs well with heavier dishes – such as steak – and a lighter, more crisp beer pairs well with fish and poultry. But don’t be afraid to mix it up and try some new pairings based on the flavors that you enjoy! If you come across a unique combination that enhances the flavor of your favorite beer, be sure to tell us about it!
