Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$L'Esprit De Château Capendu

It's good, balanced, mildly strong, spicy, seducing and polyvalent. The type of wine that you always want to have at home!

+- 30$Domaine La Monardière Les 2 Monardes 2014

Everybody knows. at least from reputation, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here is another solid one but from south Vallé-du-Rhône, that offers similar wines at a fraction of the price! Strawberry jam, pepper, cacao!

Doppelsticke Altbier, Vrooden

Comfort food = comfort beer! This strong German beer offers aromas of candied fruits, chocolate and caramel that will be paired well with the taste of meat and braised vegetables. Despite sweet aromas, it has a well-balanced aftertaste thanks to a gentle herbal bitterness.
