Rhubarb rhubarb

I saw this article in the Daily Telegraph last Saturday (luckily it’s online as well, so I can share it with you) about the author’s marathon beer tasting session, with beers specifically chosen to complement the food.  The matching of beer with food is something that I’m particularly interested in, so I found this article fascinating.  I have to say that there are quite a few of the author’s “top ten beers” that I would think twice about – perhaps that just shows how unadventurous I am when it comes to beer.  Maybe I’m strange, but I like my beer to taste of … beer!  Of the 10 beers listed, several are flavoured with additional ingredients – honey, raspberry, passion fruit, rhubarb and cherry for example.  I’m really going to have to put aside my preconceptions and try some of these…well maybe.

I haven’t actually drunk any of the 10 beers listed (so many beers, so little time … and money) – but the two that really appealed were Innis & Gunn Blonde Lightly Oaked Beer which is matured in rum casks, and Brew Dog Paradox Isle of Arran which is matured in whisky casks.  Yeah, I don’t mind my beers tasting of rum and whisky!  Will keep an eye out for these two at least.
