Beer With Food? Take That Wine!
Check out this article over at STL Today on the increasing popularity of beer dinners:
It’s basically saying that breweries are wising up to the popularity of beer and pairing it with food dishes, ala the wine-food pairings we all know that are an ever present source of controversy amongst wine enthusiasts. My personal favorite advice was to drink the wine you like with the food you like, but I know where they’re coming from.
I’m in favor of these beer-food pairings, especially as we’re starting to note in our reviews – some beers it seems were brewed with a certain food dish in mind. Money quote:
“Beer would be more appropriate than automatically thinking, ‘I can only do wine because it’s food and there’s a girl present.’ …Gimme a break! You don’t need to do that.”
I’m anxiously awaiting a beer dinner here in Charlotte – I’ll be there with bells on. Note: Apparently I missed one last year. D’oh!
