Barbecue season is upon us, and the backyard becomes the place to be: Invite family and friends and put the food on the grill.

The full-bodied, sweet wheat beer is refined by the exotic flavours of mango. This special combination pairs with every light meal of fish, poultry or vegetables. It even goes great with fruity desserts. Hearty meals are not recommended, because this type of beer is rich in calories. The combination of both can be heavy on the stomach.
Pilsner with passion fruit and grapefruit
The hoppy, pleasantly bitter notes and the refreshing, slightly sour fruit flavours taste like a light summer breeze. This beer goes well with every kind of meat: steak, pork chops or chicken wings.
Pilsner also harmonizes perfectly with salad or barbecue cheese. The only thing that should be avoided is fish. Hops and fish oil do not go well together.
Lager with lemon grass
The fresh, exotic flavour of lemon grass gives this lager even more tang. The taste goes well with fish, poultry, vegetables, salads and cheese. Even spicy marinades are perceived as milder due to the boost of freshness from this Asian herb.
This beer combines all the flavours that foodies are looking for. The malty sweetness of the beer and the lightly toasted oak aromas are complemented by the fruity cherry. Do not choose something ordinary like bratwurst. This kind of beer calls for the cream of the crop: filet, game, and for vegetarians, zucchini blossoms, artichokes and portobello mushrooms. This dark beer is an excellent choice for everyone who likes their steak hot and spicy.
India pale ale with grapefruit
The light and fruity flavour of malt and the fresh grapefruit of the India Pale Ale go well with spicy or herb marinades. Spare ribs, chorizo, steak— every kind of meat is complimented by this summer beer. Even for dessert, you can’t go wrong with this IPA.
