From classic Belgian styles and American lagers to rare brews (yes—even a salted caramel stout), we’ve got the best beer pairings to match 10 of our favorite Sunset recipes
Beer Pairing: American pale lager
Craft beers are no longer always “heavy.” Many new-school light American craft lagers—meaning, modern takes on the traditional canned beers of yesteryear—are straightforward, clean-tasting, and refreshing brews that don’t skimp on flavor, but won’t overpower light, bright flavors, or the subtle sweetness of fried foods, like these tasty fish and herbal cilantro combos. Our pick: 329 Lager from LA’s Golden Road Brewery. Add a slice of key lime to punch it all up.
