Beer Note The flavors of this menu make a traditional German Oktoberfest beer the ideal beverage. These reddish-hued seasonal beers, arriving in the United States now, have no bitterness, which can clash with spicy food. Instead, they offer caramel, nutty, and malty flavors, a chewy body, and slightly sweet palate. Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen is widely available and the perfect partner for spicy, full-flavored chili.
Dessert Note For a touch of spice, use the Mexican Chocolate Variation of the Chocolate Sauce.
