Fall months call for comfort foods like chicken and dumplings, butternut squash soup, or a slice of pumpkin pie. And, each pairs perfectly with the beverages from DE on Tap locations.
From wine, beer, meads and ciders here are some great pairings for you to try!
Chicken and Dumplings
A crowd favorite dish that is perfect for the fall pairs well with a crisp drink.
Wine Pairing: The rich and buttery flavors of Harvest Ridge Winery’s 2017 Unoaked Chardonnay is a nice compliment to the buttery goodness of the dumplings.
Beer Pairing: A light and refreshing brew, Argilla Brewing Co. at Pietro’s Pizza Blonde on Belgian helps cut through the rich flavors of chicken and dumplings.
Mead Pairing: The subtle, simple flavors of Liquid Alchemy Beverages Sweet Nothing will allow the chicken and dumplings to shine through.
Cider Pairing: A dry Rebel Seed Cider First Anthem Cold-Pressed Cider works well with chicken and dumplings, especially if the recipe contains leeks.
Soup is just what the body needs when the temperatures drop. Whip up a batch of Butternut Squash Soup to warm you up all fall. Below are some great pairings!
Wine Pairing: The creamier the soup, the more a full-bodied wine will pair nicely with them. Try Pizzadili Vineyard Chardonnay or Nassau Valley Vineyards 2017 Oak Aged Chardonnay.
Beer Pairing: A sweet and easy drinking pilsner, like Crooked Hammock’s Belgian Blonda Ale, will provide a nice snappy balance to the cheesy addition to your bowl of soup.
Brimming Horn’s Blushing Goddess is a nice subtle partner to soup, letting the honey and aromas of the soup ingredients shine through
The fresh apples, dark brown sugar and local honey used in Liquid Alchemy Beverages The Dark Cide(r) works nicely with your recipe for soup, pulling out the deep, rich flavors of each soup.
It’s time for dessert! A slice of pumpkin pie is the perfect fall dessert!
Wine Pairing: Enjoy a glass of Nassau Valley Vineyards 2019 Delaware White. The white grape will complement each bite of your pumpkin pie!
Beer Pairing: 3rd Wave Brewing’s Jack'd Pumpkin Ale is fall seasonal Belgian style ale, brewed with lots of pumpkin puree & dark candi sugar which leads to a full bodied malty beer and include a blend of spices that give your palate a pumpkin surprise!
Mead Pairing: A sweet melomel from with a full body of flavors such as Brimming Horn’s 2019 Armanu will enhance the fall flavors with a hint citrus.
Cider Pairing: The fresh apples in Rebel Seed’s First Anthem will give a delightful taste that is not too sweet to go along with each bite of pumpkin pie!
