British Pie Week: Drink pairing

By Lia Sanders on 6/03/15 11:00 AM

As you are no doubt aware, this is British Pie Week. Our thoughts obviously turned to potential drinks matches. Every pie can find a pair.

Pork Pie Timothy Taylor Landlord Ale

The four time winner of CAMRA‘s Beer of the Year is a great accompaniment to this classic English pie. Incidentally, it is also the beer of choice for Madonna and Hugh Grant.

Steak and mushroom pie Wild Earth Central Otago Pinot Noir

A robust Pinot Noir makes a good contrast to the earthiness of the mushrooms. Plus if it is a steak pie made with a red wine sauce it will be crying out for an accompanying red.

Macaroni cheese pie Baron de Badassierie Picpoul de Pinet Coteaux du Languedoc

When eating a vegetarian pie you want to ensure that the drink does not overwhelm the more subtle flavours. We’ve opted for a relatively neutral Picpoul de Pinet.

Pumpkin pie Kraken Black Spiced Rum

We can think of few things better to go with a sweet and spicy pie than a sweet and spicy drink. Plus a tot of this dark rum would make a nice contrast to all the orange.
