Granville Island Brewing has recently released their Lions Summer Ale – their much-anticipated summer brew. With lively tropical fruit notes and a slightly tart finish, this beer stands well on its own. But what to pair it with? The GIB folks challenged me to test their matchmaking skills with a recipe that goes well with this brew.
So this beer has subtle citrus notes and a refreshing finish. So how about some light seafood? Shrimp is definitely a right choice.
The garlic and lemon sauce really brings out the beer’s personality and brightness.
I paired my garlic shrimp with a lovely pesto and tomato pasta. Good, good good!
I gotta give props to Granville Island Brewing, they have mad match-making skills. This dish was a definitely hit.
The Granville Island Lions Summer Ale is available now at local BC Liquor stores for $11.29 a six pack.
