If you were to categorize the beer you drink by flavour how would you do it? How many categories would you come up with? And what food would you pair with each category?
Well splendidtable.org has done just this, and they came up with 7 categories with food pairings to match. And I think their choices have merit. At the very least their list is a good primer on what food to serve with a particular style of beer. This article is definitely worth a look.
