The Art of Drink Pairing

Understanding the art of drink pairing is like holding the key to unlocking the full potential of your BBQ meal. It’s not just about quenching your thirst; it’s about elevating each bite. At Old Town Smokehouse, we’ve crafted a drink menu that’s as thoughtful as our BBQ, ensuring that every sip enhances the smoky, savory flavors of our dishes.


For the Love of Smoked Brisket

Our smoked brisket, tender and rich, with a beautiful smoke ring that whispers tales of low and slow cooking, finds its soulmate in a glass of bold red wine. A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with its hints of dark fruit and a touch of oak, mirrors the brisket’s depth of flavor, making each bite and sip a harmony of taste.


Pulled Pork Pairings

Pulled pork, with its succulent layers and tangy sauce, calls for a drink that brings a touch of sweetness and acidity to the table. Enter the world of craft beers. A crisp, citrusy IPA not only cuts through the richness of the pork but also complements its tangy flavors, balancing each mouthful with a refreshing finish.


Ribs and Rosé: A Match Made in Heaven

Ribs at Old Town Smokehouse are nothing short of legendary. Glazed to perfection, they’re a sticky, sweet, and slightly spicy affair that requires a drink that’s up to the task. A dry Rosé, with its subtle fruit notes and crisp acidity, stands up to the bold flavors of the ribs, cleansing the palate and preparing it for the next delicious bite.


Chicken and Chardonnay

Our smoked chicken, known for its juiciness and subtle smoky undertones, pairs beautifully with a glass of Chardonnay. The buttery notes of the wine complement the smokiness of the chicken, while its crisp finish highlights the meat’s natural flavors, creating a delightful contrast that’s sure to please.


The Ultimate Companion: Old Fashioned

For those who prefer a cocktail with their BBQ, the Old Fashioned is a classic choice. Its combination of bourbon, bitters, and a touch of sweetness enhances the smoky flavors of BBQ, making it the ultimate companion for any dish on our menu.


Non-Alcoholic Options

Not to overlook our friends who favor non-alcoholic options, our house-made lemonade and sweet tea are BBQ’s best friends. Their refreshing qualities and balance of sweetness make them the perfect match for any of our dishes, ensuring that everyone at the table can enjoy a pairing made in heaven.
