Pairing: Beer & popcorn

  by    0   0

Don’t re-gift that tin you got from your insurance guy: Try these beer pairings for a holiday snack that really pops.

cheddar + brown ale
Cheddar popcorn’s addiction factor sails when salty, cheesy tang melts right into a brown ale’s soft dark malt and chocolate; you’ll be caught orange-handed.

butter + ESB
If only you could sneak beer into a movie theater: An ESB’s nutty, sweet toffee and biscuit flavors easily adopt salty, butter-soaked popcorn.

salted + Berliner weisse
Longing for summer? A Berliner weisse’s refreshing lemony tartness and the popcorn’s salt are like a sunny day by the sea.

caramel + bock
Candylike caramel corn finds a kindred caramel note in a malty bock; the beer’s smooth toasted bread and nuttiness take it from Crackerjack to sophisticated snack.

kettle corn + coffee stout
If you’re a two-sugars-please coffee drinker, then kettle sweetness will feel right at home beside a stout with espresso and dark roasted notes.

red pepper + oatmeal stout
A creamy, chocolaty stout has dark grainy notes and a dash of bitterness in the finish; add south-of-the-border chile spice and you’ve got a pair as rich as mole.
