When it comes to pairing your favorite beverages with food, the first rule is to always have fun! 

Here are a couple simple rules of thumb to get you started: 

  • Start with the lighter beers and wines and work your way to more full-bodied varieties.

  • Always start with dry and work your way to sweet. This is the same reasong behind starting dinner with a salad and working your way to dessert. You don’t want the sweets to spoil the flavor of the rest of the spread!

  • When pairing with cheeses, remember to pair aged cheeses with more full-bodied varieties and younger cheeses with lighter varieties for the full experience.

an easy appetizer!

Wheat rolls paired with bold, smoked cheeses

Add trail mix on the side for a salty snack!

For dinner, stick to red meats.
