For some men, Oscar night is as an anticipated event as the Superbowl with every bit the same reason to throw a party and kick back with the guys. So now, you have the menu set and much like the men nominated in a Supporting Role (Matt Damon as Captain Francois or Woody Harrelson as Captain Tony Stone the military officer) you need to be the Captain of your party ship.
As your party sets sail, no Red Carpet event is complete without the supporting role to your great food. Beer! To make sure you know what kind of beer goes with your menu, we thought we would help you out. (I bet you thought that there were only pairings for wine! Wrong.)
Pairing Tips: Keep sweet beer with sweet food and tart beer with tart food
Light Ales, Light Lagers: Are best suited to accompany spicy foods.
Wheat, Weiss, Witbier: Go well with a more subtle fair or a light dessert
Amber: Is ideal for pizza and medium spicy foods
Dry Stouts: Great with hearty soups and stews
Pilsner: A good accompaniment for fried and spicy foods as well as shellfish.
Let the fun begin!
