When it came to food pairing in the past, a man could either impress a date with his mastery of the complexities of wine, or hand her a beer that says "That's right, I just purchased you a burger, now let's do this". Until now, thanks to Great Brewers' Beer Sommelier.
A simple craft-beer-mapping site at launch, the bros at GB've unveiled their Beer Sommelier, a dead-simple guide to appropriately pairing suds to sustenance, arming you to casually impress the hell out of women even before they have enough booze to think you're tall and dark. The process starts with a vertical row of large picture boxes, each repping a main ingredient, from the meaty (beef, fish, poultry, game), to the not-so-meaty (nuts, fruit, cheese, chocolate); click one and a second row'll appear, offering schloads of popular dishes within the category, i.e., Pasta breaks into mac & cheese, lo mein, lasagna, etc., Bread rocks blinis and corn fritters, and Seafood runs from chowder to caviar, for that special occasion worth a vintage 1974 Schlitz. Once a dish's specified, a third row'll appear featuring general styles of beer to pair with it (i.e., German-style strong doppelbock, Bamberg-style Marzen Rauchbier) as rec'd by a cred-heavy trio of industry vets, with links to a fact sheet on the style (flavor profile, typical ABV, bitterness, appropriate glassware), and myriad examples of the style from a database of over 2,100 craft beers, each with its own page replete with tasting notes, availability, and tap type required, aka, "keg connection", also the name of a 900 number for meeting other fat, drunken men in your area.
Once you find the perfect brew to pair with your Ho Hos, GB uses its connections with 22 of America's leading craft/specialty beer wholesalers to Gmap out people selling it near your zip, whether for take-home purchase or on tap, letting you hand a lady a beer that says "I'm a connoisseur with a masterful palette. Now let's do this".
