By definition a pairing (or pair-ing) is described as “an arrangement or match resulting from organizing or forming people or things into pairs”. In the culinary world this word is often associated with food or wine, as in “this cheese pairing works well with this Syrah”. For the lover of beer this is often used to describe a slice of pizza, a couple of tacos, or a cheeseburger – paired with a light pilsner.
But now a local restaurant, nested in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, has extended an invitation, to those willing to taste the definition of a beer and food pairing.
