What’s even better than a refreshing, ice cold glass of cyder during a hot summer afternoon or evening? A delicious plate of food to pair it with, of course! Whether you’re out at a bar or at home playing host, it’s good to know just what to pair your favourite drink with. Our team at Birra Biss – top providers of both cyder and beer in Malta – have gathered a few serving suggestion ideas below.
Aspall: Draught Cyder
Perfect for those sweltering Maltese heatwaves, this cyder quenches thirst in an instant, leaving a fruity and lip-smacking taste on your tongue. Made from a bittersweet apple variety, it’s best paired with balti and bhuna mild curries, chicken with tomato and sweet red peppers and Bramley apple pie. In the mood for Chinese? No problem – sweet & sour pork is a great serving suggestion too.
Aspall: Organic Cyder
Rustic, earthy and somewhat chewy, this brew of cyder is slightly acidic in taste, with a full and generous aroma of red apples. Serve it alongside a good old plate of spaghetti Bolognese or even vegetable lasagna. If you’re craving something more British rather than Italian, go for some sausages and mash for a truly satisfying combination.
Aspall: Isabel’s Berry
Love that fresh taste of early summer fruit? Then the flavours of this cyder are berry-well suited to your tastebuds. With a lingering aftertaste of raspberry and redcurrant, this sweet and slightly acidic brew is certainly hard to resist. It goes extremely well with a number of light snacks and desserts, including summer pudding, fresh fruit salads and gooseberry crumble.
Aspall: Peronelle’s Blush
This brew’s flavour is just as remarkable and unique as the woman it was named after. With a long, soft fruity finish balanced with moderately acidic overtones, this cyder is best served with duck and hoisin sauce as a main, or fruit-based puddings for dessert.
Available in cans of about 440ml each, this cyder is just the sort of invigorating refreshment perfect for a day out at the beach with friends. Whether you’re grilling up a tasty BBQ in your back yard or watching football at home with your besties, this brew is bound to pair well with most popular summer dishes.
