Food and Craft Beer Pairing

Getting Ready for CRAFT Singapore 2017

Wine is not the only liquid worth pairing with food properly!

In preparation for CRAFT Singapore 2017, we embark on a journey through food and beer combinations bringing you tips to enjoy your favourite dishes while discovering the marvellous world of craft brews.

The art of wine pairing has been, so far, the preferred chat of many (not just the French!) but with craft beer and craft spirits gaining popularity your taste buds are in for a pairing treat.

Bar food meets malty

Think pizzas, burgers and stewed red meats... those dishes that have been caramelized in the cooking process pair great with an Amber Ale and English Ales. These malty choices complement well with your typical western bar choices but they also thrive next to some local favourites such as char kway teow and mee goreng.

Want a salad with that beer?

Guilt free food like salads and sashimi are highlighted by the light, clean flavours of a Lager or Wheat beers.

So next time you are on a diet save the calories for the liquid portion of your meal. These beers don't overpower your raw dinner but rather enhance the flavour of it

Burn baby burn!

Have you ever been told that to mitigate the effects of a hot chill you should have a glass of milk? Well... don't "hop" too quickly to that advise and try an Indian Pale Ale (IPA) instead. Hoppy beers like American Pale Ale area perfect pairing for mean curries and Mexican food. The fruity bitterness balances spicy flavours without overpowering them. So next time you are attacking a chilli crab, have a cold glass of the right beer with it.

And your BBQ companion is...

If you have to grill with a beer in hand (we completely understand your feelings) pick a Brown Ale. The "nutty-roasted-chocolaty" flavour profile complements any barbecued or smoked meat. Sausages and burgers also go well with this rich beer, but we prefer an Amber Ale with our cheese burger. By all means, go brown when you are enjoying chicken wings and satay too.


For creamy desserts replace your espresso with a Porter or Stout. They say your Kaya toast taste better with a stout! but we haven't tried that combo yet, we'll have to get back to you on that one.

If you are now extremely hungry and thirsty for a nice craft beer... make sure you book your tickets for CRAFT Singapore 2017, Happening at Clarke Quay, September 8th, 9th and 10th
