Yesterday it was wine; today it is BEER.
We all know the game of matching the right food with the right wine – though there does some to be some disagreement over whether white really is required with fish and about when rose is appropriate.
Anyway, a while ago NPR’s “Deceptive Cadence” asked someone is very experienced in both wine and classical music to come up with a list of complements – with which wine goes with which composer of which piece of classical music.
I showed in my post yesterday some of the matches made by Alex Sherman – who is a professional sommelier (wine steward) for a prestigious Chicago hotel and also plays percussion in the acclaimed Chicago Symphony Orchestra — proved expected.
But The Ear found some others very intriguing and unanticipated.
Now, the NPR blog has asked Sherman to do the same thing for beer.
So once again, take a look – as well as a sip and a listen – for yourself.
