3R Raspberry Ale is great! But… what foods should I pair it with?
At New Planet Beer we really enjoy pairing great food with great beer. In the past we have shared a beer-battered fish and chips recipe with you and plan on continuing the trend of suggesting gluten-free recipes that incorporate or can be served to complement New Planet Beer’s different styles.
The word is spreading about 3R Raspberry Ale. Its refreshing and crisp ale-like taste, complemented by pureed Oregon raspberries, makes it the perfect summer treat. But what kinds of foods can be served with 3R Raspberry Ale to deliver maximum flavor and enjoyment? The right pairings definitely bring out the best flavors in both the food and the beer, so smart decisions about what you serve can make you the life of the party. We researched suggested food pairings for beer styles similar to our 3R Raspberry Ale and here are some of our findings:
- Fruitier pale ales complement cuts of meat quite nicely. Choose lamb or beef for the best pairing, but other meats will work as well if they are broiled or grilled.
- Fish and other seafood can be paired as well, but make sure to choose a strong-flavored fish as the pronounced taste of 3R Raspberry Ale might downplay the flavor of a piece of cod or mahi-mahi.
- Not a meat eater? Consider pairing 3R Raspberry Ale with dessert! Light souffles or chiffon cakes are the top pick when prepared with fruit. Keep desserts light and avoid chocolaty pairings for the best results.
