As Canadians, we have, more often than not, come to believe that beer is a cold, refreshing drink that we have on a hot summer day or after a sporting event. The times, however, are changing. We are now getting to the same point where our European cousins have been for centuries. That is, beer is a wonderful companion to food. In some cases it may even be better than wine! Isn’t it time we learned all about beer?
Traditionally, we often think the perfect food to have with beer is pizza, wings or pretzels. There are very specific reasons why those types of foods work well with beer but there are many other experiences waiting for you. There are times when matching the right beer with the right food actually makes each taste better.
