As the air gets cooler and the leaves start to change, it’s time to start thinking about how to pair your favorite fall beers with your favorite food. Here are some of our top picks to pair with Triangle Distributing Co. beers, which are sure to be a hit at your next barbecue, tailgate, or Halloween party.

India Pale Ales

Hoppy IPAs like our Bass IPA or New Belgium Voodoo Ranger IPA pair well with strong, spicy foods such as curries. Think outside the box and pair them with spiced desserts, like gingerbread or caramel apple cake.

Pumpkin Beers

If you love all things pumpkin spice, pair this seasonal favorite with slow-cooked meat, which has a caramelized, nutty flavor that complements your favorite pumpkin ale. Other great pairings include chili, pumpkin ravioli and even apple pie. Try ACE Pumpkin Cider.


Another fall favorite, this type of beer pairs well with Mexican dishes, like enchiladas, as well as spicy chilis. Karl Strauss Oktoberfest is one of our top choices.

Harvest Ales

Pair these brews with dishes that contain spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. They also go well with rich, gooey fall comfort foods like macaroni and cheese. Check out Golden Road Get Up Offa That Brown or Hoegaarden White.


Bring this beer to your next Oktoberfest celebration, where it will pair well with barbecued foods and sausages. Pick up Hangar 24 Chocolate Porter for example.
