Rib chops come from the iconic rack. They’re great for finger food and quick on the grill.
Shoulder chops do well with bold flavors and marinades. They’re an economical choice for an everyday meal.
Loin chops are tender and flavorful. They’re just like t-bone steak and the perfect 4 ounce serving.
Sirloin chops are the leanest chop. They’re perfect for healthy summer grilling.
“For this dish I would go with the Cambridge Brewing Company’s, “Sgt. Pepper.” This is an awesome farmhouse ale brewed with 3 different peppercorns. It’s dry, so it’ll counter the sweetness of the glaze, plus it’s also spicy so it’ll be able to hang with the grill. It’s pretty darn good on its own too!” - Chef David Drew, Cambridge Brewing Company, Boston
“I would suggest an IPA with a strong Citra hop presence. A commercially available beer fitting that description would be the “fresh squeezed ipa” from Deschutes brewery in Oregon. Also, the flavor profile of our Citra is very lemony without being overly bitter, so it creates a very refreshing beer that will help to tame the gaminess of the lamb and accentuate the flavors of the Meyer lemon. Ideally this dish would be finished with a Gremolada style condiment featuring parsley and mint to compliment the mild grassy notes in the beer.” - Chef Robert McCarthy, Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, SF
“ALTeration- German Style Brown Ale - Lamb is always a fun protein to pair with beer. For my tastes, a nice and crisp German Altbier does the trick! Our ALTeration has a wonderfull malt backbone providing notes of toffee, toasted bread and faint notes of semi sweet chocolate. A nice full mouthfeel upfront should work well with the coriander and fennel and the dry, lager-esque finish should complement the fullness of the lamb. ALTeration finishes with a pleasant bitterness to help keep the beer flavors present but not overpowering to the dish.” - Josh Hare, Hops & Grain, Austin
“With this bad boy, I’d pair it with our Bloodline Blood Orange Ale. It has a caramel malt backbone, which will sweeten the subtle gaminess of the ground lamb — same for those beautiful onions. Bloodline is brewed with blood orange peel and juice alongside complimentary citrus hops, so that combination will make the lemon, licorice and red pepper notes in the relish pop.” - Erin Weston, Flying Dog Brewery, DC
"I would pair Fleur De Lis saison with the lamb recipe because the spiciness of the yeast blends well with the gaminess of lamb along with the mint and dill in the tzatziki. The fruity flavor and the dry finish of the saison go well with the grilled lamb, fresh tomatoes and cucumber." – Tessa Roberts, Naked City Brewing Head Chef
