With slightly more body and alcohol intensity than a light lager, Budweiser can stand up against a bit more flavour. However, it’s most perfectly matched with medium/low intensity fatty and fried food that are a staple of most menus.
The American classic of Hamburger and chips are a match made in heaven for an ice cold American lager like Budweiser. Due to the fatty nature of this dish it can easily become stodgy and boring, however, Budweiser’s high carbonation cleanses the palate after each bite.
The slight grainy and bready notes pair nicely with a toasted burger bun, whilst the sweetness from the ketchup will be matched by the beers malts but kept in check by the slight bitterness.
