What do you love about steak? It’s the hint of smoke, and the lovely, fatty flavor, right? Why not pair that fabulous steak with beer? We have some great suggestions below for your next steak dinner!
How do you know which steak goes with what beer? It can be intimidating, because most people associate red wine with steak, not beer. Beer can be just as lovely as a glass of wine to accompany the steak.
Check out our picks to perfectly pair your favorite steak with a brew that brings out its best.
Filet Mignon & Blonde Pilsner
Subtle hoppiness combines with hints of crisp spice, making Blonde Pilsner a delicate and effervescent partner to the Filet’s exquisitely tender texture and mild beefy flavor.
Flat Iron & Vienna-Style Lager
A firm but sweet malty center defines Vienna-Style Lager. Flavors of caramel-sweetness amplify the Flat Iron’s natural honeyed umami, cutting through its savory fattiness to refresh the palate so each bite tastes better than the last.
Top Sirloin & Pale Ale
Pale Ale is an all-purpose brew, an everyday treat. It bears a snappy bitterness with lots of citrus, light pine, and a dry, peppery finish. In other words, it’s deceivingly robust with subtle complexities — an ideal mate for the Top Sirloin.
Ribeye & Imperial Stout
The boldest steak deserves an unrelentingly bold beverage. Imperial stouts boast a natural oaky tannin like those present in red wine. Only the intensity of the Imperial Stout can equal the Ribeye’s ultra-buttery, ultra-rich flavor.
