Pale ales are best suited for a traditional burger with a higher fat content. The bitterness of the hops and high carbonation cut through the fat and cleanse the palette, especially if you are topping your burger with sharp cheese or bacon.
Burgers that are made using lean beef are best paired with a pilsner. Pilsners act in the same way as pale ales but are slightly lighter to compare with lean beef.
Veggie burgers or burgers loaded with grilled vegetables are best paired with wheat beers. The light flavour of a wheat beer allows all the aromas of the veggies to come through.
Burgers are full of flavour and rich with juices. Finding the best type of beer to pair with a burger can be tricky. A beer that is too heavy will be overpowering while a beer that is too light can get lost in the flavours.
