Beer is the New Wine: 1st Beer Created for Food

From the Brewer of Barcelona, the first beer to be paired with food is born.

World-renowned chef Ferran Adrià and team created Estrella Damm INEDIT, a beer specifically brewed for food pairings. Developed for gastronomy, INEDIT is an alternative to wine for pairing with all dishes – from informal to more exquisite, sophisticated types of food. INEDIT is a unique blend of barley malt and wheat with spices which provide an intense and complex aroma. It aims to complement food once thought to be a challenge in terms of culinary pairings, including salads, vinegar-based sauces, bitter notes such as asparagus and artichokes, fatty and oily fish, and citrus.

Unlike most beers, INEDIT is bottled in a 750 ml black wine bottle and is intended for sharing. INEDIT is to be served in a white wine glass, filled halfway and chilled in a cooler. It is currently available nationwide at select retailers and restaurants and will be available for wide distribution this fall.
