Food Pairing

Georgian Dragon and Mature Cheddar

This attractive ruby ale has so much going on in the nose, with beguiling notes of caramel and fruitcake coming to the fore. On the palate it’s deliciously sweet, full and rounded, which could become overpowering were it not for the foil of crisp hop bitterness finishing it off.

It’s an elegant, outrageously seductive match with mature cheddar, dancing with it in a way a good chutney does. It also pairs wonderfully with Viennese pastries.

Food Pairing

Georgian Dragon with Bangers and Mash

Pour this premium ale and you’re face to face with a polished, burnished glint of ruby in the glass, alongside malt led aromatics of malt loaf and bara brith. The palate is currants, raisins, biscuity malt and malt loaf alongside a plump mouth feel and a dry finish that lingers in the company of an appetising bitterness.

This would be good with cheese, either Cheddar or hard smoked goat’s cheese, where it teases the sweetness out of the cheese, and matches with the acidity of pickled onions.

Also try with bangers and mash or steak and kidney pudding with buttered cabbage on the side.
