Best Foods to Pair With Beer

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love food? How about food and beer?

I am not the only one curious about the best beer and food pairings. You have a sommelier to help you with your food and wine, but who helps you with beer and food?

I like drinking beer from time to time, especially in the summer. But I discover that not all the food goes great with a beer.

In the big cities at the best restaurants beer sommelier is a must. He or she will give you the best choice of beer for the food you order. So far, I have to be my own beer sommelier. Ha! Ha!

Anyway, here is a list of my best foods to pair with beer:

  1. Vegetarian pizza GAB_1003_res_mix
  2. Homemade pizza pizza
  3. Beetroot and chickpeas burger GAB_6430_res_mix
  4. “Langosi cu branza sarata” Romanian fried donuts with salty cheese GAB_6925_res_mix
  5. Skewers GAB_4825_res
  6. Cheese sandwich  GAB_4925_res_mix 
  7. Baked sweet brown pumpkin with mushrooms GAB_7852_res_mix
  8. Roasted turkey legs  turkey legs
  9. Pork chops with broccoli puree  GAB_9732_res_mix
  10. Wild mushrooms pie with traditional sausage and cheese  GAB_5510_res_mix

Tell me about your list? Is it short or long? I would love to try new recipes that go great with beer.

  1. Excellent pairings, and I’m tempted to try many of them whether or not a beer is involved (it should be, though).

    This is more a broad category than it is a particular dish, but Thai cuisine is, generally, superlative with beer. It’s light enough to match well with either a lager or a dark stout, and it’s exuberantly flavored, meaning it’s sure to “find” similar elements in the beer. Plus, Thai cooking is a bit spicy, subtly so, which begs for quenching.

    Nice post!

  2. Roasted vegetables seem to go really well with any beer! Best pairing at a baseball game? A big hotdog with lots of chili and onions. Worst pairing at a baseball game? Most likely funnel cake or a fried Twinkie…neither tastes good with beer and they ruin the taste of the beer!
