Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Pale Ale with fried chicken

    For an elevated experience, pair your fried chicken with Pale Ale. This combination works particularly well because this beer cleanses the palate.


  • Champagne with your fried chicken

    Experts would recommend a sparkling wine as a pairing to your fried chicken, specifically Champagne because it acts as a palate cleanser for the fatty dish.

  • The ideal drink pairing for mac and cheese

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for mac and cheese can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Chardonnay. This, acidic, white wine balances the starchy mac and cheese.
