5 Game Day Food and Beer Pairings That Win Every Time


Football Season is upon us at last. Everyone is rooting for a different team, but only one of them can go all the way.

Here's the good news: beer and snacks never lose. Especially if you pair them right. This is what you should be serving on Game Day. 

Nachos + Witbier or Hefeweizen


The world is your oyster here. Almost any beer will pair well, but here are a few suggestions for something new and exciting. Try serving a Witbier or Hefeweizen with spicy cheese. The banana and clove flavors from the beer will add a much loved complexity to the run-of-the-mill nacho.

Kick things up by making your own beer + cheese spread! Recipe here. 


Garden Hoe Witbier


Bavarian Hefeweizen 


Guacamole + Amber Ale


If going with an avocado-based dip, try an Amber Ale. The increased hop bitterness will help to cut the richness of the avocados, but the caramel notes will balance the spice and salt.


Block Party Amber Ale


Phat Tyre Amber Ale


Wings + American Lager


The humble wing is a mainstay of any Super Bowl gathering. And if you're going to go with the classics, you might as well stick to it with your beer, right?

NOTE: Learn exactly how to brew an American Lager HERE.


Pre-Prohibition Lager

John Q. Adams Marblehead Lager


Meat-Lovers Pizza + Double IPA


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once wrote “In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.” We for one, couldn’t agree more. Which is why, sometimes, we like to be lazy and just order pizza.

There are a litany of great choice for delivery pizza pairings. Try a big Double IPA with your meat lovers. The high bitterness and huge hop profile will cut right through all of the grease.


Cascade Mountains Imperial IPA 


Plinian Legacy Double IPA


 Margherita Pizza + Pilsner


If going with a classic Margherita, try a lighter beer such as a pilsner or an English pale ale. Lighter beers will not mask the great fresh and subtle flavors of the tomatoes and mozzarella.

Hopefully I have given you a few ideas to spice things up this Sunday night! However, keep in mind that these pairings are simply suggestions. In the end, the right beer pairing comes from the one you like best. Cheers
