Lesson Details

Ever wondered what kind of meal works best with a cold tall pint of Guinness?

During this lesson, Stephen enlists the help of beer sommelier and pairing expert Ian Colgan to provide an introduction into combining the perfect Guinness with the perfect meal. He explains that the goal behind any pairing is the ‘Three C’s’: does the beer cut through, does it contrast, and does it compliment the food.

This lesson focuses on the classic Guinness draught beer, and looks at different cuisines and meals that will work well with the beer’s strong flavour character. Ian explains famous historic food and Guinness pairings, and expands on them in contemporary culture.

Be surprised and excited by the unique example pairings, and gather new ideas for your venue and beer list.
