Food & Drink - - BEER DRESSING UP BEER -

Pair­ing Dou­ble IPAs with hol­i­day fare can be tricky be­cause the full body and in­tense bit­ter­ness of the beer tends to take over. But the funky, pi­quant and savoury flavours of blue-cheese-stu ed olives can stand up to a ro­bust IPA like Laser Show from Left Field Brew­ery (LCBO 546457, 650 mL, $8.95). To serve, thread the olives on a cock­tail pic and rest it on top of a snifter glass. Taste how the cheese teases out sweet­ness in the beer while also con­trast­ing the ale’s juicy melon and ly­chee notes.
