Beer and Food

foodpairing-21As most of you are aware, people a lot of times will pair wine with there food. Different wines such as reds or whites, cabernet or chardonnay with things like beef or fish or even dessert. Now a days the same thing is starting to happen with beer. With the rise of the microbrew and local breweries popping up everywhere in most cities people are starting to take beer more seriously. Gone are the days that beer is only for football games and hanging with the guys. Now beer is highly regarded and and has created beer snobs (such as yours truely). Today microbrews have so much more flavor and depth than your Miller Lites of the past. Not only are the beers more flavorful but the brewing process is more involved too, even using things such as fruits, chocolate and even pine trees just to name a few to add more in depth flavors. It’s no longer looked down on to have one of these beers with your dinner but what is import what kind of beer you have. To the left are some very different types of beers and can help lead you to what to pick with your dinner tonight.

About veggiescruff

You may be wondering what the hell VeggieScruff means? Well my last name is Turnipseed that leads to the nickname Veggie, which I’ve had for years. The scruff part didn’t come till years later with I started to develop an admiration for beards and guys with them. I also grew a love for beer and as the years passed I began experimenting and trying new different beers. But the one thing that has always been present in my life was music, ever since I was a kid. Most of my friends even refer to me as a music-snob, I think it’s meant to enduring or at least that how I’m taking it. So basically a bearded guy will always gets my attention. Then if said bearded guy were drinking a microbrew or craft beer then I’d be intrigued. But if said dude with beer was listening to really awesome music… well then you’d be reading this blog, that or be on the best date ever. So feel free to follow along or leave, the title only consists of just some of my main interest but I’m also a Printmaker and Designer so some of those topics will be scattered about and probably a few random rants too. My posts may not be relevant or even safe for work. But I will always try to be honest, entertaining and even hopefully informative from time to time, if I feel like it.
