If you love to have a sip of your favorite beer along with your food, then you are not alone on this rock. There are millions of people across the world that show love for food and beer pairings. Beer either compliments or offsets a dish. And when paired well both work in each other’s favor.
For instance, when a sweet dish is paired with some bitter tasting beer, it’s not just the bitterness of the beer that gets toned down, even the sweetness of the food doesn’t feel overpowering. Either way, you are the winner.
