“India Pale Ale” was first brewed in England in the 18th century, when the British were in India. English troops stationed in India were not able to get traditional English pale ales. Due to the long sea journey these ales would get spoiled by the time they reached India. So as you might have heard it said that necessity is the mother of invention, they prepared ale utilizing larger amounts of hops that had an increased degree of alcohol. The hops and the increased alcohol content made the ale last longer. The rocking movement of the ship along with the different temperatures increased the attenuation process smoothing out the conspicuous hoppy flavor. Giving us what is called today India Pale Ale.
This beer is found extensively today. Most of us spend a lot of time thinking of what drink to have with the food we eat. The best part about this brewed drink is that it goes with any kind of food.
This heavy bodied drink goes best with sea food. Especially with heavily spiced seafood or even sauted seafood. This is because the bitterness of the beer complements the heaviness of the spicy or fried seafood, but does not overshadow it. Instead it enhances the spiciness of the dish and works well with the fried seafood. You can try it with crab cakes, clam cakes, fried scallops, shrimp or clams and fried fish.
This drink also tastes good with beef dishes such as pot roast, steak or beef wellington. It can stand up to the strong flavors in these dishes.
Other dishes that can be tried with this drink are blackened chicken, blackened catfish and other Cajun dishes. Buffalo wings are also a good combination. It also goes very well with lamb, wild game, liver paste or quail as well.
Thai dishes like shitake dumplings or fish tacos or dishes that have hot sauces clubbed with this drink can give you a pleasant surprise.
Any dish you cook with the drink should be served with it as well.
