Taking inspiration from South of the Border flavours and dine out on these meal matching ideas that pair chargrilled meats with tasty sauces and complementing beers
There's something so right about the matching of beer with chargrilled foods, especially when they're accompanied by tasty condiments. The smoky flavours of the meat pair so well with the pungency of a few dashes of chipotle for example, and the richness of a porter or stout. Here are some recommendations for your next smoke-down...
BUFFALO WINGS + IPA
Charred buffalo wings drenched in a tangy, spicy and smoky buffalo sauce are an excellent match for an equally flavoursome lager. Drink with MAC's Green Beret IPA
SPICY FISH TACOS + PILSNER
A pilsner makes a pleasingly refreshing pairing with spicy fish tacos and a tangy green chilli sauce. Drink with Speight's Triple Hop Pilsner
HICKORY RIBS + STOUT
What’s not to love about melt-in-your-mouth ribs doused in the sweet hot smokiness of hickory sauce, paired with the robust flavor profile of a stout? Drink with Coopers Best Extra Stout
CHIPOTLE STEAK + PORTER
Rich and robust, a porter is the perfect bedfellow to stand strong with the irresistible flavour of smoked jalapeños and steak. Drink with Monteith’s Brewer’s Series Porter
LAMB SKEWERS + APA
A hoppy pale ale squares off nicely with the aromatic spices of Southeast Asian dishes like lamb skewers and a sriracha dipping sauce. Drink with Panhead Super Charger
