Midwestern Pale Ale is a great aperitif. Pair it with delicate dishes where the dry bitterness can clean up some of the fat or richness.
Also pairs well with oily fish (sturgeon, mackerel, blue fish, marlin, Wahoo and smoked versions as well), meat pies or chicken pot pies and burgers.
Dessert: Pumpkin flan, maple bread pudding or bananas foster
Cheeses: Jack, Brick, Brie, Derby with sage, Leicester, Camembert, Manchego, Emmenthaler or Gourmandise with walnuts.
