Which Craft Beers Pair Well With Wings? January 4, 2019

Which Craft Beers Pair Well With Wings?, Queens, New York

Biting into a savory buffalo wing and washing it down with the perfect craft beer is a combination made in comfort food heaven. Since buffalo wings feature bold, often spicy flavors and fill you up quickly, they don’t work well with thick, heavy stouts. However, many sip-friendly craft beers pair beautifully with this favorite bar food. Here are a few options to consider. 

What Craft Beer Should You Order With Your Buffalo Wings?

IPAs

Indian pale ales, or IPAs, combine hoppy and citrus flavors to bring out the zippy taste of Buffalo sauce. The caramel malt barley of the Lagunitas IPA, for example, contrasts with the salty chicken flavor of wings, while the beer’s citrus hints provide the perfect complement to the tangy sauce. American pale ales such as Sierra Nevada and Simcoe the Underdog from Harpoon Brewery also offer these complementary benefits.

Pilsners

wingsIf you prefer your wings with less spice and tang, a pilsner may be exactly what you’re looking for. Like pale ales, these beers offer that delicious malt/citrus combination that works well with wings, but on a softer, milder scale. Try a pilsner from Victory Brewing Co., or one from Lagunitas Brewing Co.

Lagers

As subtle as they are drinkable, lagers pair well with a wide variety of foods, and wings are no exception. Depending on what you drink, you’ll either notice more sweetness or bitterness in your brew, so keep your lager choice in mind as you decide how zesty you want your wings. Yuengling offers a sweeter taste, as does the Session lager from Full Sail Brewing Co. Also check your wing selection’s spice level, as some craft lagers are spicier than others and may clash too much with your wings.
