Recipes

80-Acre is crisp and clean with fruity/citrusy hop notes, making it ideal to pair with lighter fares. Foods made with citrus fruit, pepper or vinegar will complement the hops; wine- or fruit-based dressings and chutney will highlight the yeast character. Avoid anything too rich or spicy. While hoppy beers typically pair well with spice and strong flavors, 80-Acre does not have the necessary bitterness and body to do so.
