Sausage Pairings You Need to Try Today

Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or a dinner party with a few close friends, a delicious meal involving your favorite sausage is always the way to go. Not only will the smell of home cooked or grilled sausages taste as wonderful as it smells, but it will also be a great food item to pair with wine and beer.  

To help you with your next dinner, here are 8 wine and beer pairings you need to try with your favorite sausage dish:

Grilled Sausages

Wine: Syrah – a full-bodied, medium-tannin syrah will complement the earthy, smokiness of grilled sausages

Beer: Lager – a crisp and refreshing lager is well-balanced and has a decent hop presence that will complement the delicious flavors of both pork and chicken sausages

Spicy Sausages with Bell Peppers

Wine: Pinot Noir – a light-bodied, low-tannin pinot noir will complement the sweet peppers and mellow the spice from the sausage meat

Beer: IPA – the hop flavors and slight bitterness of an IPA will complement the spiciness of the sausages

Sausages and Sauerkraut

Wine: Riesling – a dry Riesling will have the texture and body to stand up to the sausage and the acidity of the sauerkraut

Beer: Belgium Lager – a classically smooth and complex Belgian lager will have the dry finish you want

Chicken Sausages and Pasta

Wine: Chardonnay – a crisp and vibrant chardonnay will complement a dish like chicken sausages and pasta with its notes of citrus and nectarine

Beer: Pilsner – a versatile beer like a pilsner can be quite mild and won’t overwhelm the delicate flavors of poultry
