Gourmet Burger & Beer Pairings

Welcome to Beer Country! We can never get over how lucky we are to be surrounded by such amazing food and drink here in Sonoma County. And sure, this is wine country, but we’ve got exceptional, award-winning world-class brews here, too! Here are some of our favorite beers from local, Sonoma County breweries paired with our Oliver’s Own Gourmet Burgers.

What do you get when you combine Oliver’s house-made burgers and Sonoma-brewed craft beers with a dream team of Oliver’s Market foodies? Well, we decided to find out! It turns out that these burger and beer pairings took the experience to a whole new level and are worthy of sharing with our customers!

 

Barrel Brothers Dark Sarcasm Porter paired with Oliver’s Steakhouse Burger

Barrel Brothers Dark Sarcasm is a dark beer for people who don’t like dark beers! Loaded with notes of chocolate, mocha and vanilla, the Steakhouse Burger is accented by the roasted malt profile of the beer. Subtle Nuances of BBQ sauce, and a finish with a hint of vanilla.

 

Fogbelt Hyperion Red Ale paired with Oliver’ OMG Burger

This pairing is an elegant balance of sweet and bitter, leaving a savory, balanced finish. Fogbelt Hyperion Red Ale has a rich and roasty flavor while the OMG burger is loaded with bacon, cheddar, and bbq sauce. Hyperion and Oliver’s OMG burger co-mingle perfectly!

 

Lagunitas Hop Stoopid paired with Oliver’s Bacon, Mushroom, and Swiss Burger

Lagunitas Hop Stoopid is just as its name states- Hoppy! A double-barrel dose of malt and dry-hopped brew brings out the delicious flavors of the Bacon, Mushroom, and Swiss Burger. The burger brings out the malts in the beer while the beer illuminates the mushroom flavor of the burger.
