“We want to show our consumers how our lagers, stouts, and ciders are much more than refreshing drinks on their own. Thanks to our valued restaurant partners and the insightful guidance of our Culinary and Beer expert, Thomas Ling, consumers can now experience these delectable beer and food pairings throughout this festive season at The BAR°N, SOULed OUT, and Lavo. Beer has a place at the dinner table, and we want to help spread the love for beers and ciders, as well as showcase the diverse options when it comes to pairing,” said Ng Eng Kiat, Corporate Communications Manager of HEINEKEN Malaysia.

Thomas Ling, renowned Culinary and Beer expert, shared, “Beer and Food have brought people together for centuries now. With the year-end festivities approaching, we want diners to have a truly exceptional experience enjoying the right beer paired with the right food. The pairings selected here show how lagers, stouts, and ciders can cut, contrast, complement, and cleanse the palate in their own way.”
Thomas Ling, renowned Culinary and Beer Expert brought members of the media and guests through an exciting journey of pairing the right beer with the right food.  
The carbonation, alcohol and hops from beer ‘cut through’ the flavours and textures on your taste buds; for instance, the classic lager and pizza pairing or cider and creamy pasta. Beer can also complement similar flavours and characteristics in food. That is why stout goes perfectly with the smoky char on the grilled meat. At the same time, beer and food can create a contrast pairing, bringing out unique characteristics in both your pint and your plate. An example of a good contrast pairing is oysters and stout. You can also use your beer to cleanse your palate. For example, you can use the cool and refreshing flavour of lager beer to wash down the heat of fried chicken”, he added.
