Beer and food pairing chart created by Florida auto dealer

Craft beer has become such a huge part of the American conscience that it is appearing in places that are completely unexpected. Take the example of Merrit Island, Fla. Nissan dealership Mike Erdman Nissan. To appeal to craft beer lovers and help neophytes avoid craft beer and food matching faux pas, the dealership has created an infographic that outlines pairing basics.

“Beer is great,” said dealership owner Mike Erdman. ” Beer with matching food, even better.”

According to dealership representative Krista Meiers, the dealership wants to reach out to the digital community with fun facts and interesting tidbits.

“Our goal,” Meiers said. “Is to help the people in our community with more than just finding the perfect car.”

With the holiday entertaining season upon us, the dealership thought a helpful guide to beer and food pairing was a perfect fit.

“This time of year many people are interested in splurging and trying different foods,” Meiers explained. “Mike Erdman Nissan wants to help make your Holidays special, not only with cars, but also with food and beer pairings!”

Check out their guide below and visit their website at: http://www.mikeerdmannissan.com/.

Know your beer glasses, a new infographic

Glassware is just as important to the craft beer experience as the beer itself. I haven long been an advocate of using the proper glassware to accentuate and showcase beer to its fullest extent. And, if you think about it, serving beer in a glass that helps to capture a beer style’s distinct nuances is no different than serving brandy in a snifter, a Tom Collins in a Collins glass or a champagne in a flute. It just makes sense.

But, the sheer number of beer styles and their accompanying glasses can be intimidating. Enter the fine folks at Hangover Revivol, a company that produces and distributes hangover prevention tablets in Australia. John Powers, the company’s marketing executive, created an infographic entitled ‘The Ultimate Beer Glass Guide’ that explores the various designs, what they do, and which beers belong in them. Look below to see the infographic.

“With this graphic,” Powers explains, “You can learn your snifter from your stein, and your seidel from your shaker!”

Beer vs. Wine, an infographic

The fine folks over at CompareCamp.com have put out the article and infographic below to highlight a plethora of interesting facts about two of the world’s favorite beverages. Enjoy!

Beer & Wine: Comparison Of Popular Brands, Surprising Facts And Market Trends

If you can’t drink it, don’t cook with it,” so said the late celebrity chef, Keith Floyd, about using wines to flavor food. If the guy was still around, he’d agree that any of the top wine brands we’ve listed in the infographic below would pass his taste, he who loved to cook with a half bottle of wine because the other half–he already drank.

Wine isn’t the only alcohol you can use for cooking; in fact, marinating with beer not only tenderizes meat, but neutralizes carcinogens from burnt meat. Moreover, beer, surprisingly, has less calories compared to wine. An 8 fl. oz. beer has about 93 calories versus 200 for the same amount of wine. Why then, er… the beery belly? It’s likely because we guzzle more bottles of beer than we would glasses of wine in one sitting. For more health benefits of  beer and wine see the infographic below.

But this isn’t about cooking or health alone; the infographic will let you enjoy a round of facts and trivia that you can dispense with gusto during a drinking session. For instance, which do you think is older beer or wine? Or where do you find the oldest and still operational brewery and winery? Well,the oldest winery was founded in 1211, a century before Dante wrote The Divine Comedy. If you think that’s really old, wait till you check the oldest brewery below. If you want some high-brow facts, impress your drinking buddies by pointing out the most expensive wines and beers ever. While you’re at it, feign business intelligence by mentioning that the U.S. has overtaken France as the number one wine market last year, or that the U.S. and Germany are the only two countries to belong among the top five markets for both wine and beer.

Infographic provides guidance for non-craft beer drinkers

I love a good infographic, this is a simple truth that all readers of this blog know. I mean, I even went so far as to create several of my own (https://sprbrewcrew.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/2646/ and https://sprbrewcrew.wordpress.com/2013/10/28/jacksonvilles-king-street-beer-district-infographic/). Now the creative folks at Michigan State University’s The Big Green have tossed their hat into the infographic ring as well with this thoughtful piece on beer types, glassware and tasting suggestions. I cannot say that I agree with all of the beers they suggest, but the chart is a good basic primer on expansive world of beer.
