Thank the French and Belgians for cuisine à la bière. Today not only do many chefs in Europe
and the United States practice the idea with gusto, but drinking better
beer has become part of the all-things-fine movement.
Just as certain beers either complement or contrast some dishes, beers may
be paired with top-shelf liquor, wines and cigars. A pairing could be as
sublime as chocolate with a Belgian Dubbel, as inventive as a stout and
cherry beer combined or as festive as a lime and some salt common with
Mexican beers. Here you'll see that beer has a place at nearly every meal
and occassion. Picking the right beer is the enjoyment of Beer Hunting.
