Ketchup Chips + Sleeping Giant Mr. Canoehead
Only sold north of the U.S. border, ketchup chips are tangy and slightly sweet, so try them with a malt-forward brew like Sleeping Giant Mr. Canoehead. The toasted notes contrast nicely with the chips’ acidity.
All Dressed Chips + Parallel 49 Trash Panda Hazy IPA
Match this newly released IPA from East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing with All Dressed chips. The hazy IPA’s bright tropical fruit flavours stand up to the punchy, piquant notes of the seasoning.
Plain Chips + Pump House Crafty Radler
Despite their name, plain chips are anything but when you eat them alongside a citrusy, low-ABV (alcohol by volume) Radler, such as Pump House Crafty Radler. Like the salted rim on a margarita, the savoury bite of the chip balances out the sweetness and acidity of the New Brunswick-made Radler.
Smoked Chicken Wings & Saisons
The crackling carbonation of the Saison cuts through the smoky centre of this dish, and the white peppercorn flavours in the ale complement the savoury bird. Try Bench Brewing Twenty Mile Farmhouse Ale.
Veggie Burgers & Witbiers
A Witbier’s orange and coriander flavours accentuate the earthy notes in a veggie patty, while the creamy, fizzy body cleanses the palate after each savoury bite. Try Bench Brewing Stone Road White Ale.
