Check out the food and beer pairing suggestions on this. Looks like you can have it with anything except beef.

Nothing like a Carlton Cold and some antipasto.

VB and some cigarette butts would go along quite nice.

As expected cub puts up some baseless dribble instead of useful information. I guess by informing people that it is ok to drink beer with food they will attract people back from wine and craft beer.

ohhhh - dont be so mean. Those recommendations are actually OK - IF - you are limiting yourself to the options that CUB Provide.

Its not like you can expect CUB to give you a recommendation to match someone elses beer with your dinner. I've rarely seen any craft breweries telling you that their beer is a bit shit with X type of food and you should look to someone else... commercial self interest on their (our) own website is hardly corporate evilness at its worst.

I recently made a custom beer label for a case swap and was sure to include food pairing recommendations:

If the big boys eg CUB are on it, I'd like to think I'm a step ahead of them in rejecting the "marketing" notion of pairing - hey maybe 5 years ago guys.

Good try.
