These five tasting forms help you explore three pairing interactions: complement, contrast and cut. The palate will react to the combination of food and craft beer by recognizing flavors that match each other (compliment); flavors that intensify each other (contrast); and flavors that cleanse the palate (cut).

It could be argued that all three of these interactions happen to some extent with each bite and sip; they become more or less noticeable depending on the dominant characteristics of the food and craft beer in the pairing. Start with these simple pairings and hone your tasting skills!
