A Kii Pairing - Crisps & Brew

When putting together a cheese and crisp spread it has always seemed natural to think about wine as an added accompaniment. While we believe this trio will always be a perfect pairing, we spent this summer exploring beer. We’re seeing microbreweries popping up everywhere these days so we decided to try different types of beer paired with different types of Kii Crisps and we were blown away! The combination of our unique Kii Crisp flavors with the distinct base of the various brews, proved to be even better than we imaged.

Here is our list of what we believe pairs best together. Give it a try for yourself this weekend and let us know your favorites!
