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:
- Vegetarian pizza
- Homemade pizza
- Beetroot and chickpeas burger
- “Langosi cu branza sarata” Romanian fried donuts with salty cheese
- Cheese sandwich
- Baked sweet brown pumpkin with mushrooms
- Roasted turkey legs
- Pork chops with broccoli puree
- Wild mushrooms pie with traditional sausage and cheese
Tell me about your list? Is it short or long? I would love to try new recipes that go great with beer.

Those dishes always look amazing. I love Mexican food with beer — and pizza!
🙂 Not a beer drinker, but all of those foods look and sound good. I’d go for iced tea!
Was thinking the same thing! But Love this article.
this is just awesome.
This was cool. I love pairing my beer with anything BBQ’d and extra points if bacon is involved.
Nice list … so many great food pairings with beer.
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.
I love Beer with pizza!
I am with you on that one, I love beer with Thai food especially an authentic volcanic Isaan jungle curry. I am probably in a minority in that I prefer Chang to Singha although I have never seen it here in UK.
Love this! Great post 🍺
Grilled meat with my special sauce…even on its own on a hot day!
I love apple pie. Pair it with a chocolate stout for a decadent dessert!
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!
Burgers do go great with beer. Here in Texas, it’s Mexican food. Fajitas and beer, enchiladas and beer, quesadillas… you can’t go wrong.
Such an awesome list!!! All look really yummy…
My nomination would be Yakiniku – Japanese grilled meat.
Thank you. Sounds great!
I am not a beer drinker but once in a while, on a hot day, I love Asahi beer with Korean food. Beautiful food photography!
My favorite food with beer is Beer Cheese Soup! Even though I drink mostly wine, I do like beer with fried fish, tacos, or autumn soups. Love your writing!
Great Post 🙂
Skewers are one of my favorites to pair with beer.
here in the Czech Republic we also pair our beer with chicken wings.
Thank you. Chicken wings with beer sounds great.
All German sausages and pork haunch (Schweinshax’n) go well with beer, as can be seen during the Oktoberfest.
Super! I like Oktoberfest.
Only half of the people here like the bustle- for many it’s a nuisance.
Beer and barbecue for me. Pair it with a nice mountain/forest scenery, ahhh.. Good times.
I remember many, many years ago, when I started working, my pay day treat was to go to a restaurant and order garlic king prawns and a glass of beer.
It became such a regular thing that the food was ready for me as soon as I got to the restaurant.
And the beer? Well I remember it was a German beer, and I was under the legal age to drink, but I only ever had the one, so I guess the staff let it slide.
Nowadays, I have a glass of beer after a game of bowls (it’s tradition to have a drink with your opponent), but other than that, I don’t drink.
These dishes are amazing. Would love to eat them
Fried korean chicken
What an artistic way to present. Lovely. Thanks for writing. All the best.
Basically I would pair beer with anything spicy. I live in the UK where there is a huge curry culture due to the number of Asian immigrants and beer is almost obligatory with a good old “Ruby Murray” (rhyming slang for a curry
As a previous poster said, very spicy chicken wings are great beer food and continuing the spicy theme beer is absolutely required with a chilli con carne which is hopefully more chilli than carne. I also like a pint of Guinness with a dozen oysters.
Beer is also the natural accompaniment to most Eastern European cuisine.
Basically I just like beer with anything!
i stopped drinking beer a while ago but these recipes make me want to go cook something.
Karaage & beer (I prefer Budlight lime)
Pickled peppers & beer (Heineken [alc. / non-alc.])
Over here in Korea, they pair it with fried chicken! They even have a term for it – Chimaek (chicken and maekju which means beer in korean). Though I prefer rice wine or soju over beer, somehow, beer taste exceptionally good with fried chicken. Thanks for sharing the list! Shall try it with pizza next time 🙂
I’d like to pair with wine???? Non alcoholic though
I really enjoyed reading this post because as a beer lover myself, I don’t often think of healthy things that pair well with my drink. While I can appreciate a good pizza and beer combo, I think I needed these good ideas and now I want to head to the store and make these beetroot and chickpeas burgers or the skewers you mentioned! Thanks for the great ideas!
You are welcome
My husband love beer,I actually made this for him.
