If you like...
- a dry white, then choose a hoppy pilsner.
- Gewürztraminer, try a Vienna-style lager, or a Munich-style lager.
- Champagne, choose a wheat beer (My favorite beer is wheat, but my wine of choice is a red - Zinfandel, Pinot, Cab.)
- blush Zinfandel or pink champagne, try a framboise.
- Cabernet Sauvignon, choose an English-style ale, or an American IPA.
- Pinot Noir, you might like a Scottish or Belgian ale (My second favorite type of beer).
- Fino sherry, try a lambic (These are often out of my budget).
- Amontillado sherry: a porter or dry stout (I've never tasted an Amontillado sherry; have you?)
- Port, you might like a Trappist ale (tied with Belgian ale).
Oh, there's a drink for every cheese, tum-tum...and a cheese for every drink....Oh, a porter for a pave and a sherry for a sleight. A claret for a cantal and a toddy for a tomme. A julep for a jorbkase and a negus for a niolo. A gin for a gomost and a grog for a gruth. Champagne for a chacat and a cider for chaource. Oh, there's a drink for every cheese, tum-tum, and a cheese for every drink (Miles, 2007, 123). Emmanuel Trencom drank his vasterbotten with porter.
