Grilled chicken is a very tasty dish, and it is also great as a beer snack. For the beer festival Oktoberfest, which takes place annually in Munich, one of the traditional dishes is half a chicken cooked on the grill.

Fish and Chips

This simple but delicious dish of British cuisine is deep-fried fish in beer batter, served with french fries sprinkled with salt and spices as a side dish. Traditionally, this dish was served in a bag rolled up from a regular newspaper, so fish and chips are another street food option and a great snack for any beer.
