Beer with Italian Food 5 years 7 months ago #1

Bit stumped here with pairing Italian food, specifically tomato based pasta dishes. Just had bolognese with a can of Metalman and it was good, but not perfect. Is there somewhere red wine will always be better?

For a meaty spaghetti dish there's two directions I would go. Either something along the lines of a Belgian double that would compliment that dish or something saison-like that would contrast and cut it.

Haven't tried them though!

Belgian double isn't a bad shout actually, I'll have to pick one up when I'm back in Dublin as I'd imagine the nearest bottle to Derry is a good 100km away.

I'd not be inclined to go for saison just because I don't like spiciness with bolognese though.

I'd go with a DIPA or something seriously hoppy to balance out the tomato's acidity.

I would tend to think of which style would most closely resemble a red wine due to how well that goes with Italian food, and I would say that perhaps a Flemish Brown or Red might be the way to go.

I find a Saison works really well to cut through the acidity of a tomato sauce.
