Drink pairing tips

  • A next-level pairing for Margarita

    Experts suggest pairing a grilled burger with a glass of Margarita, a popular cocktail.


  • Pair Kentucky 75 with fried chicken

    When considering what goes best with fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Kentucky 75, it truly complements the dish as it cuts the fat of the fried skin.


  • Go for Vieux Carre with heavy meat dish

    For an elevated experience, pair your heavy meat dish with Vieux Carre. This combination works particularly well because this cocktail cuts through the heaviness of the dish.


Factoids

  • The go-to pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s mac and cheese you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a Spanish granache. The ripe, fruity sweet flavors of the Spanish granache won’t detract from the flavors of your mac and cheese.

  • Celebrating American

    Pittsburgh, The United States is the proud home of the annual Picklesburgh Festival, held every July to celebrate everything that is good about American.
