You always know when fall is about to check in: There’s a refreshing crisp in the air; warmer layers are piling on; tastes are becoming richer with savory meals stuffed with apples, pumpkins, and wholesome spices like nutmeg and cinnamon; you can hear a slight crunch in your step as you trek through fallen leaves; and, of course, there’s the return of the seasonal spiciness and deep flavors of fall beers paired with Monday Night Football.
Where there’s the comfort of rich foods, warm tastes, delicious beer, and your favorite team playing, there should always be a comfortable seat. That’s why we’ve compiled this guide to enhance your game watching experience, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy. Because it’s never too late to discover first-class comfort alongside the handcrafted quality of a Karl Strauss beer.
Front Row Action
Aurora Hoppyalis IPA showcases hops, front and center. Robust flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, pine, and tangerine linger through a dry, crisp finish. Aurora Hoppyalis is an awesome pairing for stronger cheeses like blue or gorgonzola. Kick up your game day experience even more with Seatcraft’s revolutionary SoundShaker Vibration Kit and bring the energy of the field home to you as your seat shakes and vibrates in synchronization with on-screen action.
Don’t Miss a Moment of the Action
Mosaic Session IPA is bursting with vibrant grapefruit aroma and flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. It’s perfect with fish tacos because the beer’s citrusy flavor profile complements a squeeze of lemon on the tacos. And if you like your tacos on the spicier side, Mosaic Session IPA has enough of a malt backbone to help temper the heat. But, be careful, tacos can get messy. We recommend using Seatcraft’s Swivel Tray Table so you can enjoy your tasty bites, refreshing beer, and game day entertainment without ever having to leave the comfort of your home theater chair!
Get Carried Away
Karl Strauss Oktoberfest lager pairs wonderfully with another autumn staple – pork schnitzel sliders! The beer’s toasted malt flavors complement both the sweet pork and salty pretzel buns. Oktoberfest’s crisp, clean finish leaves your palate feeling refreshed after each bite. And with tastes that good, you’ll really want to just sit back and relax. Explore the ultimate in relaxation with Seatcraft’s Larosa Home Theater Seating, with top grain leather, power recline, and Chaiselounger footrests.
Celebrate in Style
Peanut Butter Cup Porter is Karl Strauss’s twist on a robust porter, and it packs rich layers of smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate flavors. Go for chocolatey desserts as a pairing, because this beer has enough roasty malt flavors to balance out any sugary sweetness in the dish. In addition, the chocolate, coffee, and peanut butter qualities in the beer are easy complimentary flavors to find in desserts! If you enjoy a cigar as part of your celebration, you’ll also want to check out Seatcraft’s Cigar Host as you bring the cigar lounge experience right into your home theater room.
Queen of Tarts is Karl Strauss’s dark sour ale aged in American Oak barrels with Michigan tart cherries. It’s rather complex, which means it’s really fun to pair with! The tart cherry flavor contrasts the natural sweetness in grilled meats or buttery fish, and can make a great accompaniment to a side salad with bitter greens. Try it with Seatcraft’s Neck Pillow because you know you want to treat yourself.
