Pairing Craft Beer & Food
Not only is it wise to enjoy food when you drink alcohol, it’s more social enjoyable, and healthful…and it’s hip and trendy!
Yes. The rise of craft beer has attracted folks who also love fine food, and we all know they’re better together. Indeed, America recently celebrated this in fine fashion at Savor in Washington DC, a food and craft beer extravaganza.
Handcrafted microbrews go with so many different things. Some folks pair items according to similarity, like zesty foods and a beer with spicy notes. Others like contrasts, like a solid stout and a delicate fish or salad.
There are lots of ways to join the fun. You can educate yourself, go to events, ask others for ideas and tap into resources available to learn more.
At Standing Stone Brewing Co we’ve got both fresh beer and fresh food made on site just for you. Come in and play with some pairing ideas and ask us for suggestions. We like savoring an Oatmeal Stout with Stir Crazy Chocolate Cake, or the Double IPA with a Valley View Beef Cheeseburger.
Come join us and share your favorite pairing discoveries. Enjoy the trend.
