PEI Liquor Celebrate Spring 2018
COOKINGWITH CRAFT BEER
WHAT STYLE OF BEER SHOULD YOU STARTWITH?
One of the most overwhelming decisions when cooking with beer is deciding which of the many styles to use.
Pale ale is really the most versatile for cooking; it has a balance of hoppy, rich flavors and fruity overtones. Be careful of any super-hoppy IPAs or APAs, which are excellent for drinking yet can be too bitter for cooking. Brown ales can be used interchangeably with pale ales but also lend themselves particularly well to cheese dishes and rich stews and braises. After you've tasted and cooked with these styles of beer, you’ll be ready to explore other flavors. Try strong Belgian ales in robust meat dishes, fruit beers in desserts, wheat ales in fish and poultry—and the list goes on. Remember to think about balancing sweetness and bitterness, acid with richness. Crack open your favourite brew and get cooking!
