Beef and Kim­chi Burg­ers

Cool down the heat of the chilli in this dish by serv­ing a clutch of cold Herbal­ist Manuka Ale 500ml ($107 12pk). Cleans­ing, malty ale, in­fused with manuka leaves, fen­nel seeds and bur­dock root, cre­ates a sooth­ing, rich, softly spicy beau for th­ese beefy burg­ers. Buy from the­herbal­ist.co.nz.

Bar­be­cued Buf­falo Chicken Ke­babs

The sweet and sour­ness of th­ese ke­babs call out for a glass of Caythorpe Marl­bor­ough Ries­ling 2017 ($45 for 2 bot­tles). Masses of man­darin and apri­cot leap out of the glass. Brac­ing acid­ity, ele­gant nat­u­ral sweet­ness, tangy and taut – it’s a must-sip. Buy from caythorpe.nz.

Pork and Le­mon­grass Banh Mi Burger

There’s some­thing in­trin­si­cally awe­some about Thai flavours, tea and beer. So why not com­bine the whole she­bang. Waikato-based Good Ge­orge Brew­ing have col­lab­o­rated with Waikato icon Zea­long Tea, to cre­ate Good Ge­orge High Tea Am­ber Ale 440ml can ($5). The rich, malty, tea-leaf tones of the beer work beau­ti­fully with th­ese Thai-style burg­ers. For stock­ists, con­tact daniel@good­ge­orge.co.nz.

Bar­be­cued Hoisin Glazed Pork Ribs

Open the fridge and pull out the scar­ily gor­geous Te Kano Es­tate Cen­tral Otago Rosé 2017 ($27) to serve with th­ese sticky meat treats. “Te Kano” means “the seed”, and this sul­try, sat­is­fy­ing and lovely fruity ex­am­ple cuts through the sweet­ness of the hoisin glaze like cit­rus scis­sors. For stock­ists, email finewines@teka­noe­sate.com.

Broc­coli, Mush­room and White Bean Burg­ers

In­ject lift and zest into the creami­ness of the beans and the earth­i­ness of the mush­rooms with a glass of the new Mon­teith’s Sparkling Cider Brut Cu­vée 750ml ($12.99). The perky-bright ap­ple and cit­rus im­pres­sion leads to a clas­sic, creamy – al­most slightly as­trin­gent – fin­ish, which fresh­ens up th­ese veg­e­tar­ian flavours nicely. Widely avail­able in su­per­mar­kets.
