Picture this: the sun is shining, the grill is hot and your friends are telling you what an amazing person you are. The only thing that could make things better would be to have a keg of beer at your disposal. This doesn't have to exist only in your wildest daydreams (well, perhaps the sun actually shining when you want it to) because we can make the keg of beer part happen.
Perfect Draft is, well, the perfect accompaniment to any gathering: birthday parties, team-building events and, of course, BBQs. Keeping the kegs of Leffe Blond, Ruby, Royale and Rituel, as well as the lovely Frankziskaner Weissbier and Hoegaarden Wit at a chilly 3?C , each pour will be at a fantastically consistent temperature ensuring a fresh, crisp beer.
Each of the beers that we have available for the Perfect Draft system are all easily drinkable and appealing to many taste preferences. These refreshing beers are also a wonderful partner for food. Here are some of my BBQ pairing suggestions so that you can fire up that grill, call your friends and have a great day in the sun:
Try this with: Grilled sausages/hot dogs, grilled seafood, salads
Try this with: Grilled seafood/chicken, asparagus
Try this with: Cheeseburgers, jerk chicken
Try this with: Grilled salmon, grilled game burgers
Try this with: Charcuterie, smoked pulled pork
Try this with: Summer fruit Pavlova, Summer Berry Crumble
Obviously, this is just a start to get your Bank Holiday weekend BBQ going. As versatile as these beers are you can take this any direction you want, just remember some simple rules: you don't want the beer to overwhelm your food, try to find a complementary flavor and playing with contrasts can be fun. Have fun experimenting! Yet, no matter your plans we hope the sun shines on your this weekend. And that you receive much adoring praise from your grateful friends.

Remember the childhood excitement of opening a new door on your advent calendar every day in the run up to Christmas? It gave each day a little sparkle of festive magic, even though those tiny chocolates behind the doors were always a bit rubbish. How would you like to recapture that childhood magic, but with bottles of delicious beer instead of powdery chocolate? Sounds amazing, right? In that case, you need to get your hands on our Craft Beer Advent Calendar.
Pairing beer and food together isn’t all rules and science. That would make for a terribly boring dinner party! Instead, it’s the art of taking a good beer, some good food and partnering them together to make something even better. It’s the adventure of discovering what works, what doesn’t and what you like. It’s you taking a bite, taking a sip and then declaring your undying love for that imperial stout and chocolate cake.
Barrel-ageing beers is not a new thing, but it is getting more and more popular, and has probably never been as inventive. Adrian Tierney-Jones explores the new wave of ageing beer in wood
