Escala en Arriaca de la ruta del DKV Scooter Club

Lo prometido es deuda, y tras la avanzadilla del pasado mes de agosto, un centenar de integrantes del DKV (Dios Ke Ventisca) Scooter Club de Guadalajara visitaron la fábrica de Arriaca este fin de semana en lo que supuso una parada más de la ruta que este colectivo organizó por distintos emplazamientos de la provincia de Guadalajara y que finalizaba en la capital arriacense.

Cervezas y gastronomía: otro maridaje perfecto

Si nos atenemos estrictamente a la definición del diccionario de la Real Academia de la Lengua Española (RAE) acerca del maridaje, encontraremos, en su segunda acepción, la unión, analogía o conformidad con que algunas cosas se enlazan o corresponden entre sí. Ni una mención a la gastronomía ni algo específico o exclusivo para el vino. Sin embargo, en estas líneas sí hablaremos de gastronomía. Y de su casamiento perfecto con una cerveza para cada momento, diferente, en el que nos sentamos a la mesa para yantar.

Cada vez con más profusión estamos asistiendo a la apertura de las cartas de caldos y otras bebidas de los restaurantes españoles hacia una variedad cervecera, hacia una apuesta de cervezas de calidad manadas del mimo más artesano en su producción.
