Food Pairing Disaster #2

So, another attempt at food pairing. Steak and chips. Fairly easy you might think to pick a beer than goes well. Well. We picked a nice beer from Sierra Nevada.

129: Kellerweis Hefeweizen, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., 4.8%
However, it was banana-y. Lovely, but banana-y. And steak and chips with a banana on top isnt my idea of a wonderful match. Drank it though, and enjoyed it in a round about fashion. Next up we had a lager.

130: St Mungo, WEST Brewery, 4.9%
This was loads better and complimented it well. Wouldnt say it was an intelligent choice, but it worked nicely. I think ticking and matching has problems- if you havent tried a beer before, how are you going to know what it tastes like.
