TIP OF THE DAY: Peanut Pairing

Peanuts Beer

Not every type of peanut goes well with beer.

 

March is National Peanut Month. People (and bars) commonly serve goobers with beer; the idea behind giving them away at bars is that salty peanuts make you thirstier for more beer.

But there’s an art to pairing peanuts with libations:

  • German Hefe-Weizen beers, with their scent of roasted hops and wheat, echo the same notes in peanuts. A perfect match!
  • Sherry is known for its nutty qualities, so serve roasted peanuts with a sherry aperitif.
  • Honey-roasted peanuts match better with a fruity wine.
  • Hot chili peanuts also beg for a wine with residual sugar to offset the heat of the chiles.
