We’ve know that certain beers go well with certain foods, but this chart from Lifetracker.com.au shows you which beer flavours pair best with different types of food.
You have more flexibility with these more general pairings because you’re not limited to matching specific beers with specific dishes, so you can reach for your favourite brew that matches up well.
If you have a certain dish in mind, this chart shows you the flavour notes to look for when buying beer to go with it. For example, rich foods like chocolate or braised meat go well with strong tasting beers that have malty and sweet or dark and roasted flavours.
You can even find specific recommendations of beers and dishes to pair, like bread pudding with a Bock. The chart also notes why the beer and food taste so good together (bringing out certain flavours, interacting with the components like fat).
