Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


We've paired 31 beer styles from around the world with over 500 foods. A smattering of cheeses are included as well. What beer goes with the pretzels on the bar, or that smoked salmon you're having for dinner? How about with pumpkin pie? OK, what are you going to eat with your Saison?

Choose your food, and you'll be instantly shown beer styles that complement your selection. Another click brings you additional detail if you need it. Alternately, choose a beer style from the beer list, to be shown foods and cheeses that pair with that style.

We're not promoting any beer companies, we're hoping to introduce you to different styles of beer. Try a smoked beer with your meal, or have a lambic with dessert. We'll present the styles, and you choose the brand and the beer.

If you love beer, and you've tried them all, but still don't know what foods work with your favorites, this app is for you. If you want to venture away from the light bubbly clear and flavorless stuff they call beer and don't know where to turn, this app is for you too. If you want to impress your girl at the micro brewery, you've come to the right app. If you want to show up your studly date, download this app now!

If you're a beer pro and you feel the app needs some help, we'd love to hear from you. If you have some pairings of your own, please contact us and contribute your ideas.

You never know when you'll find yourself at a village pub in the Romanian countryside. So you'll be happy to find that all the data resides within the program so your pairings are available without an internet connection.

5 out of 5 Stars: Beckett Guide to Phone Apps
"On your next trip to the pub, don't get overwhelmed by the beer choices. This app suggests beers that go with cheeses and foods - so when you order fish and chips, you'll know to pick out a sweet, rich porter or a hoppy pilsner. And it works the other way as well, so when you're in the mood for a pale ale, you'll know which foods or cheeses to pluck from the menu. Browse lists of foods, beers and cheeses to find the right match."

Beer Food Pairing Guide

Beer Pairing

Certain types of beers can compliment specific food flavors just as wine does. Thanks to Wegmans, these charts provide great food pairing suggestions for both robust ales or crisp lagers. Cheers and happy tasting!

Bohemian's Cherny Bock Schwarzbier In Draft

Draft Magazine's December 2011 issue features our very own Bohemian Brewery's Cherny Bock.

"A dark malt bouquet permeates the fluffy head on this swarthy schwarzbier. Caramel and chocolate sweetly counter a dash of roasted malt sents, while a subtle lactic twang intensifies the aroma. This light-bodied brew spans the tongue with faint roasted malts threaded with caramel sweetness. Quiet, earthy hop bitterness rises before the swallow, and merges with a touch of ash and a lactic bite for an assertively dry finish. Although Cherny Bock could benefit from heftier malts, it's a quaffable beer with the style's classic clean lager swallow."

A Craft Brewer's Thanksgiving

A Craft Brewer's Thanksgiving

By Anthony Orig

November 2011

Thanksgiving is a diverse meal, where dishes not only vary regionally, but from family to family. The abundance of types and styles of food leads to endless ways to go about pairing craft beer with Thanksgiving dinner. Some choose one beer that pairs nicely with all the dishes, while others tend to have many bottles open for tasting/experimenting during the meal.

"I'm totally down with the many bottles approach and experimental angle," says Cory Wentworth, head brewer of Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City, Mich. "I think our beers speak to that philosophy as well. We are always experimenting with new flavor profiles, new ingredients, and different styles of brewing. Many times there are way too many flavors in the meal to just pair it with one beer."

We asked a few brewers to share their Thanksgiving specialties, recipes and all, so you can get a regional feel for what the pros will be cooking and pairing on the big day. Don't forget to search the recipe section for great ideas on how to add craft beer to your dinner table in addition to your standard pairings.
