Meats and Beer at Ruth’s Chris
A good, juicy steak deserves a fizzy and refreshing companion. When in doubt, you can always try any IPA with red meats. The combination of a caramelized crust on beef with a full-bodied beer is a perfect pairing. Try a Sweetwater IPA with your Ribeye, Filet, or New York Strip.
With your Stuffed Chicken Breast, try the Sweetwater Brown Ale. This ale was made to compliment roasted birds as the fat neutralizes the hoppy bitterness.
Seafood and IPA
To compliment your rich seafood or shellfish like a Fresh Lobster, order a Belgian style wheat beer like the Monday Night Brewing “Fu Manbrew Belgian-Style Wit”. The acidity in the beer highlights the lobster’s sweetness with a dry finish to take on the rich clarified butter.
When you order our delicious Chilean Sea Bass, get a Jekyll “Hop Dang Diggity Southern IPA” with it. The sweet potato and pineapple hash accompanying the fish is sweet, so it’s a clear choice to have a full-bodied IPA to go with it.
Vegetables with Ales
With the popular and incredibly decadent Lobster Mac & Cheese, a Sweetwater 420 is a solid choice. A refreshing pale ale compliments the three cheeses and cleanses the palate bite after bite of the gooey comfort food. Bonus: a pale ale also goes well with seafood, which is perfect with the lobster.
The vegetable dishes like the Pan-Roasted Cremini Mushrooms go very well with the Dogfish Head “Indian Brown Ale.” This beer brings out the umami flavor of roasted or grilled vegetable choices.
Chocolate Paired with Stouts
Yes, beer can definitely pair with dessert! Try the Apple Tart with the Dogfish or Sweetwater Brown Ale. The hoppy and malty flavor of the ale cuts through the sweet caramel notes from the tart, and it’s magical!
We can’t forget about chocolate. Indulge in the Chocolate Sin Cake with a Guinness Stout. You get chocolate on chocolate with this pairing and the Stout will bring out the espresso in the cake.
