Beer and artichokes?

pamplemouse May 10, 2011 06:08 PM

I know pairing wine with artichokes is very difficult, but what about beer? Any particular suggestions?

    Like any other pairing, the preparation is often as, if not more, important that the primary ingredient. That being said, there are a number of light, crisp wheat and summer beers that could work. Especially if the preparation, as is so often the case, involves lemon. Anchor's Summer Beer, for example, is pretty widely available and in line with what I'm thinking.

      MGZ, have you tried Breckles Brown? I think it would be perfect with artichokes

        No. I have not seen it here in NJ, even though most of the Anchor beers are pretty widely available. Now I have something to seek out as I would really like to try it.
