Jameson Caskmates, Craft Beer, and Food Pairings

Our Brewers’ Favorite Food Pairings for an IPA or Stout with Jameson Caskmates

Our Favorite Food and IPA Pairing:
  • Carnitas Tacos
  • Jameson Caskmates IPA on the rocks
  • Bale Breaker Topcutter IPA

The bitterness of the hops cuts through the fattiness of the meat, and the citrusy hops really jive with the cilantro on top. Keep it cool with an avocado or tomatillo salsa.

Kevin Smith, Head Brewer & Co-owner from Bale Breaker in WA

Our Favorite Food and Stout Pairing:
  • Fried Chicken
  • Jameson Caskmates Stout on the rocks
  • Captain Lawrence Frost Monster Imperial Stout

The salty and spiciness of the fried chicken and the dark roasted flavor of the stout work perfectly.

Scott Vaccaro, Founder and Head Brewer from Captain Lawrence, NY

Our Favorite Food and IPA Pairing:
  • Spicy Chicken Wings
  • Jameson Caskmates IPA neat
  • Revolution Brewing Anti Hero IPA

While a swig of beer might offer a brief break from the heat, IPAs actually intensify the flames while you eat spicy foods. It's one of our favorite combos, as long as you can handle the burn.

The Revolution Brewing Team from Revolution Brewing, IL

Our Favorite Food and IPA Pairing:
  • Pizza with spicy sausage
  • Jameson Caskmates IPA on the rocks
  • River Horse Hippotizing IPA

The bitterness of the IPA would accent the saltiness of the sauce and mellow out the heat of the sausage.

Chris Walsh, Co-Founder & Brewer from River Horse, NJ

Our Favorite Food and Stout Pairing:
  • Barbeque
  • Jameson Caskmates Stout neat
  • Local craft stout beer

The spicy sweetness of the barbeque sauce brings out the richness of the beer.

WHISKEY

What is Jameson Caskmates?

Like all the best conversations, the one between Jameson’s Head of Whiskey Science and the Head Brewer of a local craft beer brewery, started at the bar and ended with a swapping of whiskey and beer barrels to create a one-of-a kind series.
