They say beauty is in the eye of the beer holder… so this weekend be sure to be holding a cold one in celebration of International Beer Day.
Celebrated across the globe on 4th August, the Dimmi team are bringing the goods with only the best food pairings Sydney has to offer, to honour the taste of your favourite brewski. With this year’s Beer Day falling on a Friday, what better excuse to get out of the office for knock-off drinks or a long lunch and embrace the Aussie spirit.
Take note, fellow beer drinkers, and read on below for the top 3 venues we recommend you visit this Friday!
THE AUSSIE LEGEND
Beer of Choice: Little Creatures Pale Ale
Little Creatures, lager to the true Aussie legend. Brewed in Fremantle Australia with live yeast conditioned in kegs, this beer comes served with true blue freshness. The beer is made from special malts that offer a hint citrus and grapefruit.
Perfect Combo: Crispy Skinned Ocean Trout + Oysters
The notes of citrus and grapefruit blends so seamlessly with the fresh Ocean Trout, so turn it up a notch and go for a seafood lunch. Make sure you order plenty of oysters to start, the best damn bad boys in town. Located in Sydney’s central CBD, the Morrison is your go-to for long, boozie Friday lunch. Shuck yeah!
SENORITA, I FEEL FOR YOU
Beer of choice: Negra Modelo
The Negra Modelo is a medium bodied dark beer. It’s rich brown colour comes from the caramel malt which complements the distinctive Mexican flavour. The beer has a slightly sweet undertone which contrasts the sourness that comes from lemon in Mexican cuisine.
Perfect Combo: All you can eat Tacos
The All You Can Eat Taco Menu mixed up with the Negra Modelo will transport your tastebuds straight to Mexico. Starting off with a healthy dose of appetizers, extra guac please, followed by a feast of infinite tacos.
A LITTLE TRIP TO ITALY
Beer of choice: Birra Moretti
A quality beer made the traditional way, Birra Moretti is the Italian’s beer of choice since 1859. A lightly golden coloured lager with a perfectly balancer, delicate malty flavour. The result is an easy-to-drink, clean brewski that’s best served chilled
Perfect Combo: Pizza
Sydney’s favourite local, Fratelli is your go-to for boozie after-work drinks and dinner. Authentic, traditional pizzas ranging from all the classics through to the Fratelli specialities, there is something for every palette with 20 pizzas on the menu. Our go-tos? Classic Margherita followed by the Salumi. Order up!
