Press the button to get recipes that might pair with your chosen style.
Each beer style is given a list of "keywords" stored in a database. These keywords are made up of types of cuisine that on a broad level should pair well with that particular style. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.
The keywords are chosen from different sources, but the most common source for these pairing cuisines is Garrett Oliver's "The Brewmasters Table." If you like the idea of this tool and pairing beer with food, buy that book!
This tool randomly pulls those keywords and then uses a couple of different recipe websites (APIs) to select what could possibly be a good recipe to pair with your selected beer style. The search results from the three sources are randomly blended and presented to you in a list. Scroll through and pick a recipe for your next meal and beer pairing. Or just pick the first one if you're brave!
