Just as the orchestra’s music builds up into climatic power, our Crescendo will escalate the desire for fine beer, which only Valiant Brewing can satisfy.

Pairing with almost all forms of food, our blonde lager should essentially have no boundaries of where and to what it’s paired with. With it’s light and dry body, lighter foods such as chicken, salads, salmon, bratwurst, or even a classic American cheese burger will pair nicely. You will have to select cheeses that are light as well. A good selection could be Monterey jack, mild English, or Cheddar. As for deserts, light apricot, lemon custard tart, or even oatmeal raisin walnut cookies with a helping of vanilla ice cream.
