Roast pork with an alcohol-free IPA
One of the hardest things if you’re not drinking for any reason is finding a grown-up drink that will work in a restaurant without leaving you feeling that you’re not having as good a time as everyone else. And as I’ve said before beer is much better in this respect than wine.
When I went for Sunday lunch at The Blaise Inn in Bristol yesterday I would normally have had a glass or two of wine but as I was driving I was happy to find that they had a choice of alcohol-free beers on their list including the excellent Clear Head from the Bristol Beer Factory which I’ve recommended before on this site
It tastes very much like a conventional IPA so was the perfect partner for my main dish of roast pork belly with apple sauce. I really didn’t feel I had missed out at all. (And the lunch was excellent by the way. A great place for a Sunday roast.)
And if you can drink there are some other good choices for pork belly here
