In the name of bringing every day indulgence to a mealtime near you, we’ve whipped up a few fast food and beer pairings. Summer might be the most “on-the-go” season of all, with constant invites to the beach, or needing to grab a quick bite before a hike, or even grabbing a quick meal before you board a flight. All of these could use a craft beer accompaniment.
For summer time sake, and savoring every last moment of it, we encourage you to stop, take a breather and not think. Don’t think about the errands, the appointments, the cleaning… or about dinner.
The goal isn’t health, the goal is happiness. Just make sure you eat well before and after trying these amazing pairings!
Erdinger Weissbier with Taco Bell
With a malty backbone and a delicate sweetness from the malt, this Weissbier might surprise some with how easily is matches up to the bold spice of taco. The mouthfeel and lighter body also go really well with the tortilla.
Abita Big Easy IPA with Chick Fil A
This IPA goes so well with a Chick-fil-A sandwhich because the hops and slight notes of tropical fruit compliment the spices in the breading.
MIA Mega Mix Pale Ale with a Burger King Whopper
Let's face it, there's few things like a flame-broiled Whopper with pickles and mustard. This pale ale expertly satisfies the sour flavor of the condiments while matching the intensity of the flame-broil.
Duvel Golden Ale with Chinese Takeout
With notes of toasted wheat and a slight nuttiness, Duvel's Golden Ale matches up to the umami of Chinese take out.
Henninger Premium Lager with McDonald’s French Fries
Fries tantalize with their salty, fatty, carby goodness. You'll need a beer, like Henninger, that can wash it all down with crisp refreshment.
