Our range of specialist bottled Craft Beers & Ales
Lightest style of beer; match with light dishes – e.g. Salads, fish, chicken, pork. Any big flavours in the dish will risk overwhelming the flavours in the beer, but lagers can serve as a good palate cleanser – the carbonation helps scrub your palate clean, refreshing it ahead of the next dish either as a palate cleanser to start, or between courses.
The amber colour comes from the use of richer, sweeter specialist malts which often give beer a nice caramel sweetness to off-set the bitterness of hops, which are used for aroma/flavour. That caramel flavour will lend itself particularly well to food that caramelises as it’s grilled, roasted, etc.
Pale Ales & IPAs
These beers are hoppier, fruitier and much bigger on flavour. Their grassy and citrus fruit flavours lend themselves well to punchier flavours on your plate – Thai, Mexican, Cheddar cheese – as well as to a similar range of foods as the Amber Lagers – burgers, sausages, pizzas, steaks.
The hefeweizen style is one of Bavaria’s specialties, along with Helles and Dunkel style lagers. Wheat beers in this style carry a wonderful creamy texture, with a rich fruity flavour, and a slightly spicier character. These beers are adept at partnering a wide and diverse range of foods but are particularly good with pork dishes and spicier food (the creamier style of the beer helps to balance the heat).
