Maine brothers develop a craft beer that pairs beautifully with Indian cuisine

Ales pair effectively with pizza, stouts and porters are nice with barbecue, and a wheat beer is attractive with salads, but for spicy meals like Indian and Thai, lagers and pilsners are the way to go.

That is one particular of the major explanations why brothers Van and Sumit Sharma, whose loved ones has operated Bombay Mahal in Brunswick for 30 many years and who were the primary homeowners of Style of India in Bangor and Tandoor in Portland, needed to brew their personal beer that pairs completely with the advanced spices and warmth of Indian delicacies.

Rupee Beer launched previously this 12 months and is now on cabinets at stores and in dining places throughout the condition, such as at Damon’s Beverages in Bangor and Waterville, the Purely natural Living Middle in Bangor, and Worldwide Beverage Warehouse in Ellsworth. It’s a clean, entire-bodied lager which is fewer carbonated than most other lagers, to greater complement the spiciness of several Indian dishes, like biryanis, kebabs and tandoori hen.
