Our next client function at dhk architects is a “burgers and beer” evening.  I am not much of a beer drinker (that’s hubby’s department –  I do love my wine way much more :-)) … but being the curious sort that I am I needed to establish what beer might go best with our burgers….

During the course of my tasting expedition, I eventually came upon an ale that seemed to find resonance with me and my palate.  The ale was smooth and lovely and I decided to pair it with a chicken and minted pineapple burger. It was a perfect beer and burger combination.

The pineapple is definitely a good pairing with the chicken, with the mint lifting the whole dish to something that is both fresh and light … the Parmesan cheese gives it that rich salty flavour – without overpowering the chicken or pineapple.

This is really so easy to put together for a Friday evening spent with your besties.  Just make sure the beer is cold… even better pop a few beer glasses in the freezer before serving the beer.

PS: I spoke to Boston Beers and they suggested you drink their Boston Lager with this specific chicken burger.

Cheers mate.
