Pairs: Wings & beer

Ain’t no thing but our favorite wing and beer pairings.
/ 0

Honey-sweet or habanero-hot, your wing should match what’s in your mug. Here’s how to pair ’em properly:

Lemon Pepper & Boddington’s Pub Ale

Mild-mannered Boddy’s politely steps aside for the wing’s lemon and pepper flavors, but its hop bite and soft, creamy mouthfeel tidy up the palate.

Garlic Parmesan & Rio Grande Brewing Chili Cerveza

Spice things up Southwestern style: A chili beer brings on the heat, while its green pepper flavor is a perfect pard’ner to garlic and parmesan.

Honey Barbecue & Widmer Brothers Pitch Black IPA

This wing’s tangy barbecue sauce gets fresh-off-the-grill credentials from a black IPA’s roasted notes, which emulate a charred flavor.

Hot & Samuel Adams Bonfire Rauchbier

With a mouthfeel thick enough to battle this wing’s blaze, this rauchbier’s smoky tones complement the heat to create a firestorm of flavor.

Spicy Asian & Hoegaarden

In this global-inspired pair, a traditional Belgian witbier’s coriander and lemon draw out the wing’s ginger-and-red-pepper sweetness, while refreshing, zippy wheat tames the sauce’s spice.
