Top 10 fine dining beers

7th April, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Not long ago guests perusing a beer list at many a Michelin starred restaurants might have been forgiven for thinking it merely an after thought featuring only the most popular beers, with wines instead taking centre stage.

But those days are continuing to slip away. The fine dining world is waking up to the popularity of specialist brews with many revamping their beer lists to reflect their fine dining potential.

Most recently chef Michel Roux Jnr, who has long included a wide selection of beers at his restaurants, oversaw a competition organised by the London Brewer’s Alliance which called upon London breweries to enter their best brews for a chance to have them served at the chef’s fine dining establishments.

Selling an expensive bottle of fine wine will of course be a priority for many profit conscious restaurateurs, however attention should undoubtedly be paid to crafting a beer list of equal quality.

And as the popularity of craft beer continues to rise, it seems wise for restaurants of all calibres to take a second look at their beer lists.
