As classic as fireworks on the Fourth of July, our Blonde Ale is rooted in the American tradition of brewing. The name pays homage to a time when our area was called “New Sweden” and attracted over a million immigrants to the new world. We brewed this beer to attract the millions of non-craft drinkers to explore the new world of craft brewing.
Our New Sweden is known for its simplicity, making it an easy-drinking beer that is not only visually appealing but deliciously welcoming.
New Sweden Blonde Ale by SBC is not for the spicy fare – otherwise her flavors will be completely lost. It’s best to pair her with lighter foods such as chicken and salmon and delicate Italian dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs. Middle Eastern dishes like falafel and hummus, as well as salads, are all great choices too. As for seafood, whitefish and lightly flavored sushi pair well. This beer style also works well with Monterey Jack or nutty cheeses, such as Asiago, Gruyere and Parmesan, as well as desserts that are on the sweeter or tart side.
Suggested Foods: Spaghetti and Meatballs or Sushi
Cheese: Asiago or Monterey Jack Cheese
Desserts: Key Lime Pie or Lemon Custard Tart
