Brew in Miami: Pair these craft beers with July 4th foods
From barbecue to apple pie, there's a beer for that.
Beers of the Week: Here are several beer styles and suggested pairings to go with Fourth of July foods.
Smoked: German-style rauchbiers and other brews made using smoked malts give off campfire aromas and flavors that go really well with burgers cooked over an open flame. Try: Stone Smoked Porter.
Pilsners: Looking for pure, cold, liquid-gold refreshment? Reach for a pilsner; classic European versions are malty and spicy while American versions are off a little more grassy and hoppy. They’re all great with watermelon or garden-fresh salads. Try: Victory Prima Pils.
Pale ales: Not quite as bitter or hoppy as India pale ales, good-old American-style pale ales are great complements to salty, savory foods like hot dogs and brats.Try: Founders Pale Ale.
Cider: A growing subset of the craft-beer category is cider, which is a match made in heaven for apple pie. Try: Doc’s Hard Apple Cider.
