Warm your soul with hot slurps and cold sips: Here’s how to beer-pair a big bowl of a tomato soup. (Share your own soup-and-snifter pairings with #souperbeer!)
1. A nut brown‘s toasted malt, butter and nutty flavors are like a deconstructed grilled cheese sandwich, tomato soups most beloved companion.
2. A smoked porter‘s ashy campfire plumes swirl into the soup for intense fire-roasted tomato flavor.
3. Sharp booze from a strong Scotch ale adds some alcohol sting to the thick tomato liquid, similar to white wine in spaghetti sauce.
4. Sweet and bready, a snappy pilsner replicates the oyster crackers you sprinkle on your bisque.
