Beer and Food Pairing (1)

After publishing my previous post ‘ Beer should not be an alternative but THE option’  I noticed that many of you were sharing the post on Facebook. First of all thank you all, secondly I think that this happened as many of us lack information about beer and its potential in our dining experiences.

So I decided to give you more information about specific beers that we find locally and food they could be combined with.  With the help of an expert friend of mine I am going to share  with you information about two beers  and the food they are better combined with. Will be writing more posts later on

The most popular beer in Malta is Cisk Lager. This  award-winning lager is golden-coloured and bottom-fermented lager with a distinctive and well-balanced character. Its rich hop aroma and pleasant bitterness, combined with a mild astringency, make it an outstanding thirst-quencher.

Cisk Excel (Low-Carb) Lager is Malta’s first low-carbohydrate award-winning lager beer that retains both the original Cisk Lager taste and the same alcohol level but with 50% less carbs.

These beers should be served cold from 4° up to 7°. These beers could be paired with BBQ food, poultry, fish and shellfish dishes. When it comes to platters, this beer is best paired with Brie cheese.


Those of you who cannot buy this beer locally can still grab a can or bottle from  Cheers!
