Beer Pairing Menu @ Taps Beer Bar

October 12, 2013

Taps Beer Bar this year introduced experiments to pair food & beer for maximum enjoyment of both; worth a shot, even (or especially) for those of us whose appreciation of beer feels minimal.

The menu explains which food complements or enhances which beer; both the food & the beer sound interesting & prove tasty, so thats a hefty bonus.

No mere, mundane bar snack: Roasted pumpkin with hummus, coriander & chili ...

... complements Blonde/Pilsner, enhances Amber Ale.

The pairing seems harmonious, though our beer-tasting palate isnt experienced enough to discern the details of the complement/enhance aspect.

Double cheese souffle, featuring pecorino & goats cheese (RM15), rich but not cloying.

Taps beef burger is worthwhile too, with onion rings, egg, guacamole & mozzarella cheese.

Robust fare deserves to be drawn with deeper, darker brews.

Also a fan of Taps pizzas; try the one with egg yolk, basil & anchovies (RM16).

Cleanse the sinfulness of all that with a nice, ripe tomato salad (RM12) ...

... or a mushroom one (RM18), perfect to partner with the Mountain Goat organic Steam Ale. Prices at Taps are pretty pleasing.
