What kind of beer goes perfect with those nuts? Find out with the BeerCloud app (previously a webapp called Beer Sommelier) on your iPhone or iPod touch. According to Sam Calagione, co-author of “He Said Beer, She Said Wine” and owner of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, “BeerCloud is the killer app for on-the-go beer and food pairing. If you have this encyclopedic database on hand you can cheat on your go-to beer style with confidence.” Discover, select, and locate great beer with BeerCloud.
While wine and food pairing has been common practice for years, many people are discovering that beer, with its extraordinary variety of unique flavor and aroma characteristics, as well as the benefit of carbonation, can rival and often exceed wine in its ability to harmonize with food. With the growing stylistic diversity in today’s beer scene, people are discovering ways that unique beer styles enhance their culinary experience, however few resources exist to help guide the beer and food pairing decision. That’s where BeerCloud can help.
