The trees are bare, the beautiful color palette of the leaves is long gone and the days are getting shorter. King Winter has arrived and the festivities are just around the corner. It’s time to start preparing for Christmas dinner or simply to spoil yourself with a winter dish in combination with a winter beer.
During the winter period, many breweries launch seasonal beers that contain winter herbs such as cinnamon, licorice, anise and thyme. These Christmas beers are often also dark beers with a relatively high alcohol content.
At Kasteel Brouwerij Vanhonsebrouck we have several such beers. Get ready to discover three beers that go perfectly with winter dishes. From appetizers and starters to mains and desserts, we have a beer for every course. It’s up to you to taste and approve them!
#1 | Kasteel Nitro Quad and cheese
Those who like a beer with a story will certainly appreciate our Kasteel Nitro Quad. The hints of roasted and caramelized malts go perfectly with strong cheeses. Time to plan a cheese and beer night soon?
#2 | Kasteel Nitro Rouge and pâté
Although Kasteel Nitro Rouge is a fruity beer that you would much rather drink on a sunny terrace, it is also a strong beer perfect for food pairing. Why not start your Christmas dinner with a grilled brioche with pâté as a starter, served with a glass of Kasteel Nitro Rouge? The sweet taste of cherries goes perfectly with this classic dish!
#3 | Kasteel Nitro Barista and chocolate
Caramel, toffee and chocolate. These winter flavors are united in perfect harmony in our Kasteel Nitro Barista. This type of chocolate beer is similar to a stout, a British beer style, with clear notes of coffee. Instead of serving your guests a cup of coffee this winter, treat them a glass of Barista with a praline or a piece of chocolate fudge as an alternative to dessert. There’s no better way to end the perfect dinner!
