Prost! Pairing beer and Aquna for Oktoberfest

Australia’s Oktoberfest in the Gardens back in 2022 — an event inspired by the love of the food, drink and culture of traditional Bavarian festivities. Who doesn’t love an excuse to dust off their dirndl and lace up their lederhosen? With beer the highlight of Oktoberfest, when it comes to food pairings, a cold ale goes brilliantly with Aquna.

Matched well, the right brew elevates and accentuates the flavour of seafood. Fish can pair with nearly every type of beer. In this article, you’ll learn more about a few types of beer to team up with your next Aquna dish. So, in the time-honoured tradition of Oktoberfest, let’s raise a glass together in the celebration. Prost! (Or cheers, in English).

Pair these “beers” with Aquna

1. Pale ale

Pale ale is a golden to amber-coloured beer style brewed with pale malt. Easy drinking and usually fruity, any pale-coloured beer works well with beer-battered fish, like Aquna. See our Aquna fish and chips how-to video, below.

2. Seltzer

Seltzer is basically carbonated water. Hard seltzer is carbonated water combined with alcohol and fruit flavouring. It’s on-trend right now, popular for its bubbly, low-calorie qualities and is considered a staple at summer barbecues.

3. Ginger beer

Traditional ginger beer is a sweetened and carbonated, usually non-alcoholic beverage. A good ginger beer is super refreshing, especially in summer. Ginger beer is also popular for battering fish and making delicious sauces.
