In Dublin and also Bray where I live, there are more places now than ever, where you can get great beer and food too. Whelehan’s wines, Hollands of Bray, any of the Galway Bay pubs, to name a few. As I venture to advocate beer and food pairing in Ireland, I also want to give you some ideas to try at home.
The World is moving into a new age in which Beer is at the top of the food (pairing) chain. There is even a michelin star restaurant in New York, Luksus that is solely serving beer with twelve courses, paired by the house sommelier. Ten years ago you’d have been called mad to predict this but perhaps there’s a refined beer scene on the horizon in Ireland too.
