Try shoestring sweet potato fries with garlic salt and spicy mayo paired with American or European pale lager.
Bring the delicate Japanese tradition of tempura to your ale-drinking customers. The elegant, airy, deep-fried batter is delicious over carrots, sweet potatoes, asparagus, onions, and mushrooms. The combination of crunch on the outside and al-dente on the inside is a wonderful partner for the crisp taste of Japanese style brew.
