4 Tips for Pairing Wine with Grilled Dishes

I confess… I am a malt fan first. I know my way around a glass of beer, and I’m learning to enjoy scotch whisky, too. When it comes to wine, I am definitely a bit of a novice.

Southern Tier Pumking Ale

Last Fall, I did a little write-up about pumpkin beers. I tasted them and used my patented “pumpkin meter” to rate each beer. The highest mark went to Terrapin Brewery’s Pumpkinfest – still a great beer and one I highly recommend.

At the time, though, I had not yet discovered Southern Tier Pumking. And thus I write today, as the fall seasonal beers hit the shelves for 2013: buy this beer. This is the gold standard, the king, if you will, of pumpkin beers.
