Most pubs and restaurants promote wine with food, but the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) said that, with more than 8,000 real ales and 1,000 breweries, there are beer flavours to go with any dish. Camra is suggesting a series of strong and mild beers, porters, wheat beers, bitters and golden ales to go with dishes ranging from curry, chicken and, of course, fish and chips.
