Is there anything better than achieving that perfect balance of your favorite beverage with a great snack or meal? Our palates can identify five basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savory.
Here in Choctaw Country, you can dabble in all the tastes and be able to make great choices no matter what’s on your plate or in your glass!
Vojai’s Winery – Broken Bow, OK
Get uncorked at Vojai’s Winery and enjoy the fruity flavors of their signature Rainmaker wine. We all know wine and cheese pairings are ageless companions. But remember, the wine should always be sweeter than the food. A few great choices to go with xx wine is pepper jack, Brie and Muenster. Add some smoked prosciutto, nuts, crackers or sliced bread and you’ve got yourself the ultimate charcuterie board!
Beaver’s Bend Brewery – Broken Bow, OK
There’s nothing better than a cold beer and hot dog. The Blond Beaver Ale is a light blonde ale with a touch of hops that separate it from traditional American lagers and ales. The sweet maltiness and low caramel notes work well with the fatty richness of a hot dog.
Be sure to check out Beaver’s Bend Brewery’s other delicious brews at several area restaurants throughout McCurtain County. Plus, taproom guests can purchase refillable growlers and bottles to share with friends and family!
Hochatown Distilling Co. – Hochatown, OK
As summer approaches, bourbon and barbecue can be an essential part to any backyard summer experience. Hochatown Distilling Company Single Barrel Straight Bourbon contains the familiar blend of caramel, vanilla, oak and roasted almond notes layered on sweet aromatics with a nice rye spice finish for a one-of-a kind flavor. This makes it the perfect pairing partner for smoky and fatty meats. As for barbecue, you can pretty much smoke or grill favorites ranging from brisket, ribs or pulled pork.
