Easter Dinner Beer Pairings

03-29-2013

Easter Food Pairings

 

For those who gave up the good stuff (aka beer) for Lent, congratulations! This weekend your taste buds and beer belly will be set free to enjoy both meat and beer this Sunday! Here are some simply delicious pairings to peruse and consider for your feast.

 

Ham roast with New Belgium Trippel

 

Picture a savory and sweet brown sugar rubbed ham roast. Now picture that paired with a Trippel. New Belgium’s Trippel is brewed with coriander, which adds a spiciness that goes well with the brown sugar and spice rub I typically cook my ham with. The fruit notes will also complement the sweetness of the ham, while the alcohol level helps clean the palate.

 

Scalloped Potatoes with Blue Point Hoptical Illusion IPA

 

Cheesy creamy potatoes are always a staple on the Easter dinner table. Pairing them with a hopped up beer, like an IPA, creates ensures neither the potatoes nor the beer overpowers the other. The strong flavors match the intense cheesiness of the dish while the hops cut through the creaminess.

 

Peeps and Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils

 

Animal-shaped marshmallows are pretty much sugar bombs in the mouth. To help mellow out the sugar bomb, pair Peeps with a light and crisp pilsner, such as Mama’s Little Yella Pils. The pilsner will contrast the sugar-saturated peeps with its crisp finish.
