Parker rejects the concept of "Parkerized wines"

 TAGS:Sometimes the power and influence that reach experts in specific disciplines - in this case the world and culture of wine - can lead to rather curious situations. In fact, in a recent interview given to the French magazine Terre de Vins, wine critic Robert Parker has been forced to comment on the growing buzz, (considered as a truth by many media) that certain winemakers adapt their products to the personal taste of the same Parker to eventually become one of the Wines Parker 100 +, since he is one of the most authoritative voices of the international winemaking.

How to pair beer well?

Luckily, nowadays we can enjoy a great range of beer flavours: sweet, bitter, somewhat spicy… that means we can mix them more efficiently with food flavours. Now, we can find ways to marry beer and food.

For example, lager marries perfectly with some fishes such as tuna, salmon, and with Sushi as it enhances the flavour of soy and raw fish. Exactly as for wine, the flavour of the beer must never contrast with that of the food to maintain the aromas and flavours, it has to enhance it even more.

Wheat beer marries well with all kinds of aperitif snacks and first courses such as pasta, salads, shrimp, asparagus, cured meet… and many more, thus giving a refreshing touch to all kinds of dishes. For more substantial dishes like meets and main courses, it is best to drink a beer with more body, like roasted beer, flavoured lager or even ale.

With desert, spicy or home made beer marry perfectly, especially ones with touches of liquorish flavours or any flavour that the consumer rather enjoys. With sweet foods such a chocolate, it’s better to favour an ale that will leave you with touches of liquorish and dried fruit.

A fresh lager tends to marry well with more tart flavoured dishes with a strong vinegar touch because it reduces the sourness of the vinegar or escabeche, that is too strong for some palates. You can choose a fresh lager to accompany spicy dishes like curry to also mild out the strong tart and sour flavours. When it comes to cheeses, it’s important to know that not all can marry with beer, it’s always better with cow cheese, and among those, there will also be various degrees of compatibility.

Anyway, every palate is a universe, it’s a matter of the taste and the colour, some people will find that some foods marry perfectly with beer and others won’t.

Which beer do you find marries best with your food? Here are our recommendations:
