Match of the week
Sausage and gammon pie and Wiper & True Family Tree IPA
OK, pie and beer is not rocket science but sometimes it’s good to be reminded what a very good match they can be. Especially when both the pie and the beer come from the same place.
The pie was the super-crumbly warm sausage and gammon pie they serve at No 12 Easton in Bristol with a generous dollop of piccalilli and a fennel salad and the beer a bottle of local Bristol brewery Wiper & True's Family Tree IPA which contains Nugget, Simcoe and Mosaic hops. I was quite startled to find it was 7.2% ABV - the alcohol didn't seem at all overpowering
Being in the West Country, cider would of course have been an equally good option but I didn't miss wine at all.
How often do you put a bottle of beer on the table when you bake a pie for friends?
