In the mood for a tasty food and beer combo?

Friday Dec 03, 2021

We’ve lined up some amazing pairings for you to try at home:

Start the weekend with sourdough pizza fresh out of the oven and a chilled, crisp beer. Crafted by three generations of master brewers, Peroni Nastro Azzurro offers a balance of citrussy and spicy notes. Its clean finish cuts through the rich, savoury flavours of our Co-op Irresistible Wood Fired Margherita Pizza. San Marzano tomato sauce tops an authentic sourdough base, finished with fior di latte cheese, jewel tomatoes and pesto. Friday night in, Italian style? Salute!

Catch up with friends or family and savour the flavour of Goose Island IPA, with a plate — or two — ­of Goose Island Crispy Halloumi Fries on the side. Created using hops from the brewery’s own farm in Elk Mountain, Idaho, this IPA has a deliciously smooth finish. The halloumi fries are from Goose Island’s new range of frozen bar snacks — exclusive to Co-op — which pairs perfectly with the brewery’s beers, as each snack is flavoured with one of their iconic brews. They’re perfect for sharing, so gather round, chill out and tuck in.

Make sure you’re ready for spontaneous gatherings with tasty nibbles and expertly crafted beer on hand. Serve a spread of Co-op Antipasto Selection — a mouthwatering mix of Milano salami, Ventricina and Prosciutto Crudo — with Co-op Pitted Black Hojiblanca Olives for a savoury pop of flavour, and the malty, hoppy Menabrea. This elegant beer has a super-smooth finish, thanks to gentle maturation in cave cellars at the foot of the Italian Alps. Produced by one of Italy’s oldest breweries, it’s just the job for toasting good food and good company.
