I recently attended a dinner party at my mother in law's house where each course of the meal was perfectly matched with a glass of wine. We had assorted apps with a sparkler, soup with reisling, salad with dry rose, beef tenderloin with a cab and so on.
I would like to do something similar but with a beer pairing for each course. My wife and I are big fans of Sunday brunch so we are going to do this quite a bit earlier in the day with a bit more of a brunch theme. I have a good bit of the menu worked out so I am looking for some beers to pair with the following menu:
Assorted Fruit and Pastries: Strawberries, assorted melons, pineapple, fresh berries, assorted scones, and pastries.
Soup: Grape Gazpacho
Salad: Baby spinach greens with crumbled bleu cheese, crumbled bacon, sliced red onion toasted almonds and balsamic vinaigrette.
Entree: Roasted pork loin with onion ragu, roasted asparagus with poached egg, and roasted fingerling potatoes.
Assorted cheeses to finish.
There is no style of beer that I want to take off the table, I am pretty much open to anything. Also, if you have any other ideas to add to the menu I am open for suggestions.
