    The beer spectrum has expanded with a variety of craft beers and offers an incredible array of flavors. A great craft beer can enhance a delicious meal, and it can also be used in cooking. The world of beer offers many possibilities for perfectly matched food pairings, whether as a beverage or an ingredient. From IPA and pale ale to craft pils or strong stout beer: the variety of artisanal brewed craft beers is immense. Pale ale and India pale ale (IPA) brewed from light malt are now frequently found on a drinks menu. Pale ales are characterized by a very hoppy fruity taste. India Pale Ale is hopped at least twice, so it tastes slightly more bitter and has a higher alcohol content. Craft beers can be excellent additions to savory and sweet dishes, such as malty brownies with pecan nuts and a dash of stout beer, or creamy risotto with sparkling IPA. Our recipe for Black Pork Marinated Pork Chop with Cinnamon Pears – flavored with thyme, oregano and Black IPA – is another delicious example. Craft beer is similar to wine in that it opens up completely new culinary worlds, whether as a beverage or an ingredient. Enjoy! Recipe: Black pork marinated pork chop with cinnamon pears For
