Beer & food sampling from the Quebec correspondent..

It is hard being my father's daughter. It means I have to sample a variety of beers whenever I travel anywhere. Right now I am in Montreal visiting a very good friend of mine, and we have been doing pretty well at enjoying a wide array of Quebecois beers! 
Last night we went out for a beer down Rue Mont Royal which is currently engrossed in a big street festival. We found a lovely patio to people watch, and decided to try a beer called Quebecois Rebelle. Rebelle comes from a brewey called 'Brasseurs De Montréal', and (evidently) is brewed right here in Montreal. We were recommended the Bruschetta and goat's cheese to pair it with.
The recommendation was pretty tops! Rebelle is an Amber beer with a very strong malt kick, flavours of wheat and caramel, and is surprisingly fruity. It's actually very different from a typical red ale, but awesome nonetheless. The bruschetta and goat's cheese was also delicious, and the creaminess of the cheese really brought out the sweetness in the beer.
I think a lot of people think food pairing is more important with wine, and don't often think about the right pairing when it comes to beer and food. Make the right match when it comes to what beer will go with your meal, and you will surely be pleasantly surprised. :)

I think people don't associate proper food pairing with beer as much as they do with wine. While I think beer is probably more versatile, a good beer is just as complex as a good wine and deserves to be properly matched!
