Beer and food. A perfect combination !
Beer2go With FoodBeer is the perfect accompaniment for food !
No other drink is quite as versatile or offers such a variety of flavours. Different beers are able to complement a whole range of different tastes and food styles.
Here are some of our suggestions for beer with food:
A Good All Rounder
Probably the most versatile of all beers is the Weiss beer, Wheat or White beer. It will compliment virtually any meal but it really comes into it's own with spicy food, chillies, curries etc. Why 'Indian' restaurants serve lager or horror of horrors wine with their meals is beyond comprehension.
