There’s room for beer at your dinner table in more place than one.
‘Tis the season of holiday parties and indulging so try a few of these recipes at your next get together. Take our word for it – adding beer to your cooking ingredients will only make your meal that much more delicious.
It can be hard to believe for a beer lover that a common myth is beer not having a place at the dining table. Although when you think about it, the most interesting cuisine in the world is traditionally served with beer (think: Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indian and Mexican).
Why? Pilsners are good for cutting the heat on spicy food, quenching your thirst after savory foods, cleansing your palate after fatty foods and getting your mouth ready to taste again.
Try this: anywhere you’re suggested to use wine, substitute beer (white wine=lagers, red wine = dark ales). Check out our beer-inspired holiday menu!
