Light beer, dry lager, dry pilsner
Delicate fish dishes
need delicate light beers.
Lighter lager, pilsner, brown ale, pale ale
Almost anything works with chicken! The method of preparation makes a big difference, so that could play into the equation too.
Domestic brown ales
Brown ale tends to be lighter in body and sweeter than pale ales, and more delicate in flavour, making it versatile for different styles of pizzas.
Imported gold and amber lagers
Rich, malty, roasted beer that absorbs the heat of Mexican food and provides a great counterpart to the spiciness.
Ale, pale ale, porter
These are medium to heavy bodied beers, with good bitterness to stand up to the strong flavours of barbecued food.
BEEF, LAMB OR GAME:
Full dark ale, amber ale, English bitter, porter
Hearty beers for hearty meats; the heavier body and bitterness of these beers blend wonderfully with beef, lamb or game.
