Beer & Food Pairings
Carlsbad Food Tours is a 3-hour guided walking tour in the village with 6 stops for food, wine, and beer tastings. One of our favorite beer tasting locations is Barrel Republic on State Street. Their Carlsbad location offers an unbeatable 52 beer taps and 6 wine taps. They have also created an excellent beer and food pairing menu to browse and enjoy.
Different types of beer go well with specific types of food depending on their primary flavors.
Indian Pale Ales (IPA) are better known for their bitter, tangy notes, making them the perfect partner for salty, fried foods, like their bacon wrapped pork belly, yum.
