Time Out Melbourne

Prepare for a winter of sweet content with four recipe and James Squire pairings that are perfect for the colder months…

James Squire Jack of Spades Porter and stew
Slow cookers are the single greatest cooking invention known to man, requiring a ridiculously low amount of effort from you in order to create a tasty, tender meal. Don’t underestimate how good a cheap cut of meat and some vegies can taste after being gently roasted all day while you’re at work. Plus, you get to arrive home to your house smelling delicious. For a pairing made for wintry comfort try this slow-cooker barbecue pork stew with a James Squire Jack of Spades Porter. The caramel, toffee undertones of this craft beer work perfectly with the smoky, robust flavours of the pork. Winner.

James Squire The Constable Copper Ale and roast lamb
The next time you have people over, serve up a classic Sunday roast and they'll be in your dinner debt for the forseeable future. If you’re looking for a fool-proof roast recipe, try this roast lamb idea and serve it with a James Squire The Constable Copper Ale. The crystal malts in the beer will highlight the richness of your lamb, while the hoppy flavours will provide a bit of balance to your roast’s weightiness.

James Squire Nine Tales Amber Ale and pesto pasta
Nothing says comfort food like a really good Italian dish, and when it’s cold and grey outside a bowl of pasta is an easy cure for a chilly soul. Spaghetti Bolognese is always a winner, but this rocket and pumpkin pesto pasta is hearty without being heavy and ideal for your veggo friends. Pair it with a James Squire Nine Tails Amber Ale to enhance the spicy freshness of the rocket while the toffee notes of the beer balance the pesto bite.

James Squire Orchard Crush Apple Cider and pork, apple and cider pie
Like craft beer, there are levels of style, complexity, taste and aroma to be explored and savoured in cider, and we're here to tell you James Squire Orchard Crush Cider goes really well with pork. Try this pork, apple and cider pie recipe with a glass of James Squire Orchard Crush Apple Cider. The sweetness of the pie is offset by the crisp finish of the cider.
