Contrary to what you might think, you don’t have to be a beer enthusiast to celebrate National Beer Day. Beer is one of those things that pairs well with so many foods, desserts, and even cigars! In fact, we find that our Avanti cigars complement many different types of beer, so much so that we took the liberty of putting together this handy guide outlining our favorite Avanti and beer pairings! Keep reading for some inspiration…
Kentucky Cheroots & Stout
When it comes to choosing the right beer and cigar pairing, you want to make your choice based on flavors that will complement each other, not overwhelm or outshine the other. With the dark, chocolatey nature of stout, a bold Kentucky Cheroots cigar is the perfect companion to enhance those flavors and create a truly delicious experience that will satisfy your taste buds.
Parodi Ammezzati & Pilsner
With a medium-bodied cigar, a lighter beer like pilsner makes the most sense. As with any pairing, you want to make sure one isn’t overwhelming the other and all of the flavors are being properly showcased. A Parodi Ammezzati, our most popular cigar, is the perfect example of a classic, medium-bodied cigar that’s naturally smooth without skimping on the flavor. Pair your Parodi Ammezzati with a refreshing pilsner to celebrate National Beer Day!
Avanti Anisette & IPA
India Pale Ales, or IPAs, are all the rage lately. IPAs are hoppy, pale beers that can often taste stronger than other types of beer due to the emphasis on the hops used to make it. An IPA typically needs a cigar that can keep up with it, and Avanti Anisette makes for the perfect pairing. Avanti Anisette’s strong and sweet essence, thanks to the Italian liquor flavoring, brings to the table an aromatic intensity combined with the sweet taste of anise that can definitely hold its own when paired with an IPA.
