Red Tractor Pairing ArticleMove over Oktoberfest: debbie&andrew’s, made with Red Tractor pork have teamed up with East London based The Five Points Brewing Company to bring you a taste sensation in craft ale and sausages! With the same passion for quality ingredients, artisan craftsmanship and developing new and exciting flavour combinations, The Five Points are the perfect partners for the Red Tractor pork used in debbie&andrew’s sausages.

We’ve put together a guide to help you get the most out of your ales and sausages, explaining the perfect pairings of some of our favourites for maximum flavour.

Five Points Pale

A fresh, aromatic pale ale brewed with malted barley, wheat, and Amarillo and Citra hops from the West Coast of the USA.

Goes great with…

 

Why they work…

The crisp, bright notes of summer in this ale balance the natural sweetness of the onions and balsamic vinegar in our Caramelised Red Onion Sausages. Or try our Butcher’s Classic Cumberland Sausages – the carbonation in this ale acts as a refreshing palate cleanser, with its robust, zesty flavours cutting through the richness of this savoury sausage.



Railway Porter

Aromas of chocolate and coffee with hints of caramel, brewed with British East Kent Goldings hops. Carries meaty and spicy flavours well.

Goes great with…

 

Why they work…

The meatiness of our Perfect Pork Sausages complement the rich, roasted flavours of this porter, and works particularly well for BBQs. If you prefer a spicier sausage, try this porter with our Harrogate 97% Pork Sausages. The maltiness of this ale balances the chilli powder and pimento of the sausage, whilst its sweetness cuts through the acidity of the balsamic vinegar.

 

Hook Island Red

A full bodied, aromatic Red Rye ale brewed with malted barley, the addition of 20% Rye to the recipe, and with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops.

Goes great with…

 

Why they work…

The spiciness of this Red Rye ale compliments the heat of the pink and green peppercorns in our Perfect Cumberland Sausages beautifully – a peppery taste sensation perfect for spice-lovers! If you prefer less spice, try our Butcher’s Classic Pork Sausages. The richness of this sausage, with its coriander, nutmeg and pepper, is the ideal partner for the aroma of the ale.
