Great Craft Beer Pairings You Need to Try

You know what goes great with fresh, seasonal cuisine? A refreshing, cold brew. You may know about our thoughtfully created bar program, but did you know The Gables at Chadds Ford is crazy for craft beer?

We’re proud of our stellar bottle list and eight rotating draughts, beers that pair perfectly with our Southern-inspired menu. We asked our chef to bust out a few of his favorite combos to go with our bottle and current draught list.

Come see us and give these a try:


Sip on a Westmalle Dubbel. Its malty and fruity character complements the deep flavors of beef, mushrooms and puff pastry. Our current draught option: Jack’s Abby Calyptra. Also amazing with those beers: our Smoked Brisket Sandwich. They can stand up to the bold flavors in our big sandwich!

Confit Duck Fries

Enjoy a Lagunitas New Dogtown. Its hops cut through the rich confit and finish clean. Our current draught option: El Segundo Hammerland.


Tröegs Dreamweaver Wheat. Its delicate floral hops don’t overpower the dish thanks to a nice bright finish. Our current draught option: Levante Summit Hop Necessity.

Whiskey Ginger Shrimp

Victory Prima Pils. It’s a great thirst-quencher with a hoppy bite that complements this dish’s rich flavors. Our current draught option: Deschutes Nitro Cream Ale.

Our draught list changes frequently, but never fear: our talented bartenders and servers can recommend the right brew for your meal. Cheers to beers!

The Gables at Chadds Ford is nestled in the heart of the historic Brandywine Valley. Our combination of fresh seasonal cuisine, rustic yet elegant charm and enchanting outdoor dining will keep you coming back time and time again. The Gables is also the perfect venue to host your next special event, whether you are planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, baby shower or corporate event.
