It’s hairy crab season, and there’s nothing Hongkongers love more than getting elbow-deep in roe and cracking shells. With FeedMeGuru’s fantastic list of crab tasting menus around town, we’ve got a whole lotta beer styles for you to pair ‘em with.
What can we say? A seafood and lager combo will always be a classic. The salinity of the succulent crab meat will pair delightfully with a crisp, cold lager.
Our pick: Longboard Island Lager by Kona Brewing Co.
2. Pale Ale
It’s a favourite of the masses for good reason. Pale ales pair well with almost any dish. Fruity and slightly heavier-bodied than lagers, a pale ale adds perfect touch of malts to your briny dish.
Our pick: Classic Pale Ale by Young Master Brewery
Wash down your pincery friend with a quick, bitter hit. Hoppy and medium-bodied, a good IPA will act as a wonderful complement to crab-heavy meals.
Our pick: Stone IPA by Stone Brewing
Looking at several wickedly fiery menus, including Qi-Nine Dragon’s spicy fare, we can’t help but throw in a stout to help ease your soon-to-be-burning taste buds.
Our pick: Moon Goddess Chocolate Stout by Moonzen Brewery
