What do you like to drink with good food?

Postby jfg » Thu Jun 10, 2010 11:41 pm

I've never really got into the whole wine/food pairing thing. It's far too complex and I have a hard enough time getting a meal cooked up to worry about a wine to go with it. Beer is too heavy for me with a good meal and it has too much of a flavor that doesn't really pair well with tasty food. So for myself, it's either water or milk, but someday I would like to learn the art of wine pairing.

I drink Sam Adams Summer Ale or Boston Lager with anything or nothing.

It wasn't Sam Adams but I did have a shandy with a steak a couple weeks ago and that was really good on a hot day.

If you can find a decent local wine shop, they should be able to talk to you about pairings. You can also find pairing suggestions on the labels of some wines.

In general you can go with these, but really, it's all about what tastes good to you:
