Oh, dear--wine pairing for beer-braised chicken tonight?

Kelly | Feb 16, 2014 07:09 AM

Tonight's currently-in-the-oven dinner was based on the assumption that our guest was a beer-only kind of guy. Chicken thighs braised a la flamande--in Belgian ale, onions, a touch of mustard, thyme and brown sugar.

Now, I just got a text saying, "no, no, he really likes wine." So...what on earth should we drink?

I'm thinking perhaps an Alsatian Pinot Gris or Riesling with a bit of heft to it; I'm trying to imagine a red pairing and failing miserably.

Please help!
