Just as you choose certain wines to go with certain foods, the same principle applies with beer. Lighter-style beers enhance lighter meals. Ales, on the other hand show more body and malty sweetness, so they tend to complement foods that are roasted, broiled or barbecued. The heavier ales, rich in malt, pair best with red meats and game. If they’re extremely dark and heavy, you can enjoy them on their own after a meal as dessert.
