A great pair for your beef stew dishes would be the bittersweet Irish Stout. This awesome combination is cinched to make the beef tender and mouthwatering.


An unfiltered beer that makes the Belgians proud, the vintage Hoegaarden is peppered with coriander and orange peel which provides its renowned cloudy appearance. Tart and citrusy, this white ale is awesome when served with poached salmon and other fish dishes.

Corona Extra

One of Mexico’s bestselling beers, Corona pale lager is loaded with nice flavor and punch too. When paired with a wedge of lime or lemon into the neck of the bottle it will have added flavor and tartness.

Tiger Beer

Cerveza Negra

Made from the Philippines, Cerveza Negra sauce can make baby back ribs extra flavorful and tender. The procedure is so simple; just mix a bottle of beer with tomato paste, apple cider, vinegar, molasses, onion, garlic and a very small amount of salt to taste.

San Miguel Beer Pale Pilsen
