GREAT LINKS: BEER AND SAUSAGE PAIRINGS

IMG_0229Andouille
The staple of Southwestern French cuisine with its smoky and garlic flavours finds a match with beer with smoky richness. Porter anyone?
Bratwurst
The classic game-day sausage is a home run when paired with a full-flavoured lager.
Chorizo
The intense smoky and spicy notes of Spain’s classic dried sausage flavoured with Pimenton (smoked paprika) is cooled with a rich malty Vienna-style lager or mild red ale.
Lamb
The dense and rich flavours of lamb (and game meat) sausages beg for the bold flavours of an artisanal style English Ale.
Lunenburg Blood Sausage
The spicy and iron-rich notes of blood sausage need a robust and powerful beer match. Head to the old country and usher in Scottish-style ale with their rich, malty sweetness to handle the big flavours of this Nova Scotia
classic.
Mild Italian
This sausage finds a match with a French-inspired farmhouse ale such as Saison. The beer style’s light and vibrant persona elevates the herbal elements of the sausage.
Smoked Sausage
Match up smoked sausages with the similar smoky notes of a Porter or Stout.
Weisswurt
This particularly mild sausage, of German origin, is made from ground pork, veal, egg and milk. Match it up with a German-style Weissbier.
