Something Inside of Us Sleeps, The Sleeper Must Awaken

Maine brothers create a craft beer that pairs beautifully with Indian cuisine

Ales pair effectively with pizza, stouts and porters are wonderful with barbecue, and a wheat beer is charming with salads, but for spicy food items like Indian and Thai, lagers and pilsners are the way to go.

Which is 1 of the significant explanations why brothers Van and Sumit Sharma, whose family has operated Bombay Mahal in Brunswick for 30 years and who were being the initial owners of Taste of India in Bangor and Tandoor in Portland, required to brew their personal beer that pairs properly with the elaborate spices and warmth of Indian delicacies.

Rupee Beer launched before this yr and is now on shelves at retailers and in restaurants across the state, like at Damon’s Drinks in Bangor and Waterville, the Normal Dwelling Centre in Bangor, and World wide Beverage Warehouse in Ellsworth. It is a sleek, whole-bodied lager which is less carbonated than most other lagers, to far better enhance the spiciness of several Indian dishes, like biryanis, kebabs and tandoori hen.
