Want to know more about... Food and beer pairings?


Good, honest, real food deserves to be enjoyed and praised as an art-form in itself. Compliment the dish with a perfect pairing. No, put the wine list down! Embrace the flavors of a well-cooked meal with a vibrant, effervescent, and flavorful beer. Yes, I said beer!

Beers have such a wide range and verity of flavors that it is my firm belief that beer and wine are equal (if not better!) and deserve to share the dinner table.

Below is an article written by Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery an author of "The Brewmaster's Table." I highly recommend this book to everyone, regardless of where you stand from a beer or wine standpoint. Most of what I've learned regarding beer and food come from his literary works.

Ask as many questions as possible in the comments and I'll get back to every single one of you.
