Drink pairing tips for Wings

  • Pair Pale Ale with fried chicken

    When considering what goes best with fried chicken, we recommend a glass of Pale Ale, it truly complements the dish as it cleanses the palate.


  • Tempranillo and fried chicken


    Experts would recommend a red wine as a pairing to your fried chicken, specifically Tempranillo because it cuts the fat with its tannins.

  • Go for Champagne with fried chicken

    To elevate your fried chicken experience, we recommend some Champagne to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this sparkling wine acts as a palate cleanser for the fatty dish.
