Pairing Principles:

1. Simple pairing  The direct interaction between food and beer - from taking a bite of the food and a sip of the beer.

2. Incorporation  This is the utilization of beer in the cooking process. Using it as a marinade or in a brine, adding it to a sauce or using it as a braising liquid are some of the ways incorporation pairing works.

3. Mimicking  One of the most difficult pairings, mimic pairings are the act of matching the flavor profile of a dish with the flavor profile of a beer. It is difficult because not only do you have to understand the flavor profiles of the individual ingredients of the dish, but also the beer such as the type of hops, malt and yeast being used.

4. Story Telling  Beer, like food, has a great history behind it. Not just how it was made, but why.

5. Experimental  This type of pairing is the most fun by far. It is finding a way to make the beer the main star of a dish, often by being the primary ingredient.
