Try adding The Pig Pen to any food and beer menu. A tangle of crispy onion straws topped with tender pork, crumbled bacon, sliced jalapeños and tomatoes — drizzled with creamy cheddar cheese and BBQ mayo, this menu item pairs well with an American Brown ale or IPA. The sweet nuttiness of the American Brown ale contrasts with the richness of pulled pork and the heat of the jalapeño while elevating the cheddar and BBQ flavors. The intensity of the hops in an IPA cuts through the fat of the pork and richness of the cheese while spotlighting the flavor profile of the crispy onions.
