THE GUINNESS GUIDE TO FOOD PAIRING
Even if you’re not planning on heading to an activation – it’s a time of year filled with plenty of opportunities to celebrate and socialise with friends: to eat, drink and be merry. We’ve all heard about pairing food with wine – but have you ever tried pairing food with beer? When out indulging this festive season, try pairing Guinness Draught with a wide range of dishes. Just follow the simple guidelines below to experience taste perfection:
The richness and robust taste of Guinness Draught complements deep rich flavours, such as roasted meats, cream, and chocolate. Matching these flavours together increases the intensity of their shared characteristics.
Guinness Draught’s smooth, velvety texture provides a contrast to spices, salty food such as seafood and cheeses, and sour flavours like pickles or laksa. The contrast uncovers new depths of flavour and sensations that weren’t present before.
The bitterness from the extra hops used in Guinness Draught cuts through rich, heavy flavours like grilled meat and sauces, while the smooth texture refreshes the palate. This balances richer dishes, harmonising flavours to reveal more subtle taste sensations.
No matter what you get up to this festive season, treat yourself to taste perfection with Guinness Draught – for those who will never accept anything less.
