Will’s Beer Pairing Corner

Does it need to be said that this beer is aching for a nice cider! Depending on your apple you can go with either a dry cider for more tart apples, or a sweet cider with apples like Honeycrisp. This apple crisp will also pair very well with cherry lambics/sour beers. I am thinking Belgian Red by New Glarus. This crisp is also a good pairing for maltier beers, just in time for Oktoberfests/Marzen styles. Schell’s Oktoberfest is the titular example for a GREAT pairing with this. Also we had Montgomery Brewing’s Old Ale Gimmie the Dietz (which we reviewed in the show) is also a winner in my book for a pairing.

So there you have it! The Mollison Family Apple Crisp! If you like this recipe, please share it and let other people now about it. Or leave us a comment about what you would add or change, just please don’t say oatmeal!
