Beer and Wine Pairings for Your NIKU Farms Dinner

February 18, 2022

Do you ever wonder which drink would pair best with your pasture raised meat dinners?

We’re here to provide you some drink recommendations based on the different types of grass fed meat our local Ontario farms offer!

Regardless of your favourite cut of meat, or what you chose to add to your box this month, we’ve got a beer or wine pairing for you.

A pint of beer with buffalo chicken wings and celery sticks.

What should you be looking for in a pairing?

When you’re trying to choose the best beer or wine to serve with your delicious grass fed steak, or pasture raised chicken dinner, you really want to take all of the flavours into consideration.

The flavours should complement each other. Would you use that wine or beer in the meal itself? Would that pale beer make a good batter for your chicken? Would that red wine make a good sauce for your duck?

If you have a meal that is high in fat like pork, you’re probably going to want a drink that has high acidity to cut that fat. If you’re cooking up a meal with milder flavours, such as a fish, you’ll want to serve a lighter drink that doesn’t overpower the flavour of the meal itself.

Check out the ideas below for some of our drink pairing recommendations that you can use when serving up dinner from your next NIKU Farms meat delivery!

Grass Fed Beef

If you’re cooking up a slow cooked beef brisket, you’ll want to serve something with high acidity like a Merlot to complement the fatty beef. Grilled beef will beg to be paired with a whiskey, as they both share that lovely smokey flavour.

Any beef with a spicy twist to it will be strong as it is, so your palette will thank you for a pale ale, or a drink on the milder, more refreshing side. On the other hand, if you’re serving a beef pot pie, that heavy, comfort food will taste amazing with a Porter or Stout. 

Pasture Raised Chicken

If you prefer a hearty chicken dish, you’d do well pairing it with a red sangria, or a lighter, more refreshing drink. Making that chicken on the spicy side? Jerk chicken or something on the hotter end of the scale will crave a sweet, tangy cocktail or radler.

Thirsty yet?
