Featured Pairing:
PINTAIL PALE ALE &
SOUTHERN FISH FRY

The beer: PINTAIL PALE ALE

brings balance to big hops. Exploding with tropical aromas and bright citrus hop flavors, this is not your average pale ale. Pintail Pale Ale rides a fine line ̶– intensely hoppy, yet has just enough malt backbone to keep it totally drinkable.

The Food: SOUTHERN FISH FRY

Sustainably-farmed cornmeal-crusted catfish, ranch steak fries, spicy cucumber and jicama crudo, and Tabasco aioli.


Pintail’s bright citrus flavors are a natural complement to seafood. The beer’s dry and hoppy finish cuts though the cornmeal-crusted crispy catfish (say that 3 times fast), while its malt backbone intermingles with the cooling cucumber and jicama. Karl’s hosting a good ol’ fish fry and you’re invited. Cheers, y’all.
