Holiday Pairings with Our Fireside Favs & Nialas Irish-Style Dark

The Holidays are here, and while your entire family has decided to bring a dish, you decided to scheme your way out of cooking by bringing the drinks (both with and without alcohol.) Sounds easy enough right? Wrong. There are a ton of choices out there and you don’t want to be that person that sets down a case of light beer at the dinner table. But don’t worry, the team here at Summit Brewing Company has engineered a variety box that puts all other beer variety boxes to shame. It’s our Fireside Favorites and it contains not one, not two, not even three Summit beers but four freaking Summit favorites! And just to make sure you’ve brought something for everyone, you’ll want to grab a 6 pack of our Nialas Irish-Style Dark. 

Finally, to help you show off your beer knowledge to the family, we’ve gone ahead and pointed out some beer and thanksgiving food pairings that you might enjoy. 

Saga IPA with some Stuffing

Saga IPA’s balance of hops & malt pairs well with pretty much any thanksgiving side. With some savory and rich flavors, you might find some cornbread stuffing or some mashed potatoes, a pint of Saga IPA doesn’t miss when you’ve got both in front of you. 

Dakota Soul & Turkey

As the main course makes its way around the table, make sure you have a Dakota Soul next to your plate. Lagers always go well with white meats and Dakota Soul is no different.  

EPA & Ham or Turkey

Extra Pale Ale is a staple for any Summit fan. It’s also versatile when it comes to pairings. Holiday ham or turkey, either way it’s no problem. EPA’s caramel and biscuit malts balanced with a juicy citrus hop bite pair perfectly with savory meats and poultry!

Great Northern Porter & Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkins have a ton of spices in them and our Great Northern Porter is the perfect beer to bring them all out. 

Nialas Irish-Style Dark

With flavors of espresso, chocolate, and caramel and a balance of spicy hop characteristics make our Nialas Irish-Style Dark is the perfect beer to get you through your Turkey coma and paired perfectly with the nutty and brown sugariness sweetness you can find with a slice of pecan pie.
