Premium Napa Wines at West Palm Beach Brewery

Premium Napa Wines at West Palm Beach Brewery

Here at West Palm Beach Brewery, we don’t offer cheap off-the-shelf wines to our patrons simply to gain a couple of extra dollars and a sale or two. Instead, we entered into an exclusive contract with Pankauski Wine Cellars of Napa Valley, California in order to provide premium Napa wines to our patrons who prefer wine instead of craft beer. Why is this important? Because you know you are getting quality, from one end of the brewery to the other. Although craft beer is our main consideration at the brewery (naturally, we’re a brewery), we know that plenty of our […]

Craft beer and cheese are a great combination

Craft beer and cheese are a great combination

When it comes to pairing craft beer and cheese, there is nothing better than Dr. K’s Double IPA and our Fire Roasted Mac N’ Cheese.  Here at West Palm Beach Brewery, we take pride in the quality of the craft beer we produce in-house.  Chef Andrew, the head of our Intracoastal Kitchen, takes just as much pride in the delicious meals he creates! Craft beer and cheese is an interesting pairing Although most people may not think of craft beer when it comes to pairing a drink with their cheese, we’re proud to see that many folks are letting their […]

A Quick Lesson In Wine Pairing

A Quick Lesson In Wine Pairing

Enhance or Balance Generally speaking, when paring food and wine you want to do one of two things. Either compliment flavors and create balance through opposite compounds OR enhance flavors by playing up shared compounds in the food and wine. Sugar & Spice (and Salt!) When looking for a wine to pair with spicy food try something on the sweeter side. One of the most well known food and wine pairings is spicy Indian or Chinese food and sweet Riesling. The spices, salt and warmth in these dishes plays well with a light sweet wine, something like a Cab or […]

Pairing IPA craft beer this summer

Pairing IPA craft beer this summer

How you end up pairing IPA with food really depends on each individual brew you choose to pair.  While some IPAs have a flavor and mouthfeel that suits super creamy meals, others may be overpowering, such as the hop monsters that are being released onto the market with regularity lately.  If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, don’t.  The staff at your local taproom is the best resource you could possibly have for figuring out the best foods for pairing IPA with, as they will likely have done so themselves already. Why is pairing IPA with food fun? As we […]

Why is pairing food important to taprooms?

Why is pairing food important to taprooms?

Old and new craft breweries all over the United States are coming to realize that pairing food is an important feature for their taprooms.  A well-paired meal can make all the difference in sales and word-of-mouth, which is one of the most relied-upon resources for advertising their craft beer.  Many breweries are going so far as to gain the proper licensing for serving their own food and renovating their taprooms to include this service, or even purchasing brand new properties for this purpose.  However, why is pairing food so important? Aren’t food trucks enough for pairing food? While food trucks […]

Catch a great dinner to pair with your brew

Catch a great dinner to pair with your brew

Summer brings with it the fishing season, which means there will be some amazing meals for pairing up with your craft beer.  While nothing is quite as satisfying as a well-paired meal with your brew, catching that meal yourself just might top it on the list.  However, even if you can’t go out and catch your dinner yourself, you can still select some great fish dinners for your next pairing session. What types of craft beer pair well with fish? This question has a variety of answers, due to the differences between species of fish.  For example, catfish has an […]

Summertime is a great time for a barbecue!

Summertime is a great time for a barbecue!

With warmer weather comes the enjoyment of cookouts. This gives us a wealth of opportunity to check out new craft breweries, craft brewing styles, and friends. The craft brewing community has grown into one that is nearly boundless over the past few decades, with over 4,000 craft breweries opening their doors throughout the United States alone. This has led to an interesting shift from the more standard fare of brews to one where interesting flavors and aromas are the kings. Just as Cab is King in the winemaking industry, there are some kings of the craft brewing industry as well, […]

IPAs and great food pairing

IPAs and great food pairing

Recently, we’ve spent quite a bit of time checking into different craft beer, new craft breweries, and outstanding brewers here in the United States.  The result has been the creation of a long list of really great, high-quality craft beers and breweries that we plan to revisit.  However, we don’t spend that much time talking about the food pairing aspect of craft beer.  We’d like to change that, so today, we’re going to focus on the really great food we’ve had that paired up well with our brews. With so many different types of craft beer on the market, it […]

Great meals to pair with your craft beer

Great meals to pair with your craft beer

If there is one thing people love as much as they love craft beer, it would be food.  Not just food in general, but great food.  This is why so many craft breweries host food trucks or offer their own pub food for their patrons.  Pairing food with craft beer has become something akin to pairing wine and cheese and we all know how picky folks can get about that (including us).  The same is happening in the craft brewing community, with folks researching to find that perfect craft beer to go with their meal and we think this trend […]
