Sweet, imperial, oatmeal or dry, the gloriously versatile stout has been charming us since the 1700s. This famed dark beer is enjoyed all over the globe from the Emerald to the Caribbean Isles and while the stout is fantastic on its own it is sometimes even better with — or in — food. Our Beer Sommelier Maggie Cubbler has designed an amazing chilli that uses stout to really lift the flavour. It'll be the best one you've ever made.

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.
