Nothing supplements a meal quite like alcohol. Whether it is an ice-cold lager with an Indian banquet, or a nice bottle of red wine with an Italian dish – alcohol is the perfect accompaniment to a meal.
It can help enhance flavours and can do wonders for dinner conversation. Of course, we are not talking about pints and pints of lager or an endless amount of wine; we are talking about just the right amount to complete your meal experience.
If you are something of a wine connoisseur but have never considered drinking beer with a meal, you are missing out. With so much variety nowadays – there is a beer out there for you.
Real ale, fruit beer, premium lager, beers of the world or even light beer if you prefer – the list is almost endless. You don’t want to sit down to a nice meal with a pint of Guinness, so my suggestion would be a refreshing bottle of premium lager.
With spicy cuisines like Indian and Thai dishes, pale ales are the way to go. Similarly, pale ales work with burgers and steaks. I have found Foster’s Gold Beer goes well with a curry or a steak.
Foster’s Gold is a relatively new beer, marketed as versatile drink which can be drunk at any number of social occasions. The beer is essentially aimed at younger males, but is not limited to. The clean, crisp and refreshing taste appeals to men and women of all ages. It would be well worth getting a six-pack in the next time you are at the supermarket.
Next time you sit down to a meal with friends, or even on your own, try avoid having your usual. Broaden your horizons and try something different. You never know, you might find your perfect meal drink.
