What better way to hang out this fall than with food, friends and a few delicious combos? If you're into craft beer and delicious, fresh baked pie, try these fun pairings for sweet and sour, caramel and malt, or spicy and sweet goodness.
Cherry Pie + Funkwerks Raspberry Provincial Ale: This lightly sour ale with its subtly sweet and tart finish and bright red fruit tones mimics the same elements found in the pie.
Apple Pie + Crabbie’s Ginger Beer: Light-bodied with a spicy ginger flavor this is a perfect complement to the caramel, vanilla and baked apple sweetness of the pie.
Pecan Pie + Alaskan Amber Ale: Rich and malty in style with notes of roasted nuts and caramel, and just enough hops to cut through the sweetness of the pie.
Pumpkin Pie + Kona Brewing Pipeline Porter: The deep rich chocolate, roasted notes and earthy tones of this smooth malty porter nicely offset the baking spice and sweetness of in the pie.
Lemon Meringue Pie + Heretic Make America Juicy Again Hazy IPA: It’s like these two are twins—both have a creamy richness and bright lemon citrus flavors.
