Match of the week
Chilli con carne and American brown ale
If you’re lighting a few fireworks for the kids (or yourselves, of course . . . ) tonight and hanging round in the cold you’ll need some warming food and a good chilli hits the spot perfectly
You can drink wine with it (I always think Zinfandel goes pretty well) but for me it’s a dish that’s much better with beer.
Ideally I’d be looking for an American brown ale but they’re hard to get hold of in the UK and a Belgian brune such as Leffe’s would work perfectly well. (The classic English brown ale like Mann’s is too light and too sweet in my opinion, and Newcastle Brown slightly too bitter)
