|This is Lager Week, so invite your friends to a magnificent beer and food pairing beer dinner. Start with some overall beer and food pairing tips. Then an appetizer of:
–Spicy Steamed Mussels, paired with an American sour wheat or farmhouse ale.
-For the fish course, Wood-Grilled Trout With Mission Fig Compound Butter is delicious with an India Pale Ale or an amber ale.
-Kebabs are always fun, and these Pear & Lamb Kebabs With Harpoon Winter Warmer-Rosemary Pan Sauce are wonderful with a seasonal winter ale like Harpoon, or a highly hopped brown ale.
-For those whose palates demand beef, Indonesian Beef Rendang, spiced with ginger, tumeric and coriander, calls out for Spiced ale or imperial brown ale.
|-Now for that lager. The Cheese Course offers a wealth of choices that pair with lagers.
-But there’s still dessert—heavenly Vermont Maple Syrup- and Porter-Poached Apples. What beer to drink with it? Porter, of course!
We plan to serve this dinner on New Year’s Eve. See the many different types of beer in THE NIBBLE’s Beer Glossary—you can print it out, cut up the definitions, and turn it into a game, and every time someone can’t correctly define one of the beer terms, he or she doesn’t get to take another sip!
