Top 10 food and beer pairings

1. Pilsner and lemon sole

Whole Lemon Sole Meuniere with Lemon and Parsley GarnishPaler beers tend to go better with delicate flavours, such as white fish and chicken, while richer beers go better with bigger flavours. However, there have been a few times that I’ve tried theoretical matches that haven’t worked, even when you think it’s an absolute no-brainer!

One safe combination is a good Pilsner with a white fish such as a plaice or hake or lemon sole as the lightness of the Pilsner doesn’t detract from the delicate flavours of the fish. This is a good pairing to start off with for people who aren’t feeling quite as adventurous and want to stick more closely to their usual choice of wine and food pairing.

    Great article.. it is time people stop looking automatically to wine and start considering beer options when having a nice meal. It is great to get some tips and guidance to help lead people to the vast and versatile world of nice beer and food.
