Picnic Perfect: Frio Beer and Food Pairings for Your July Outdoor Adventures

Imagine clear skies, hot sunny weather, and beautiful scenery—the perfect backdrop for a picnic with friends or family. And of course, good food and drinks are a must. With its refreshing taste, Frio Beer is the ideal choice. These food and beer pairings are spot-on for kicking back and making memories under the sun, whether you're enjoying a laid-back day outdoors or picnicking in your favorite spot.

1. Classic Burger

No picnic is complete without the classic, juicy burger we all love. Grilled to perfection and topped with your favorite fixings, it pairs wonderfully with Frio 6.0. The smooth, full flavor of Frio 6.0 complements the rich, savory notes of the burger without overwhelming them. Add cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a scoop of ketchup to create a picnic staple that everyone will enjoy.

2. Grilled Chicken Skewers

If you want to keep it on the healthy side, then grilled chicken skewers might be the perfect option for your picnic. We suggest marinating the chicken in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs to give it a savory and zesty flavor. This option pairs great with Frio 6.0, which has a slightly fuller flavor that matches well with the chicken's savory and zesty notes. For an extra burst of flavor, serve with a side of tzatziki sauce. Thank us later!

3. Fresh Veggie Wraps

Another great healthy option are fresh veggie wraps. Not only are they an excellent choice for a lighter, refreshing meal, but they’re also easy to eat. Our favorite veggie wraps include cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, avocado, and hummus. Pair them with Frio Light, and you’ve got the perfect light meal for a hot summer day at the park.

4. Beer BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

There's something so satisfying about a BBQ pulled pork sandwich, especially when enjoyed outdoors. It’s the perfect family-favorite summertime meal. If you’re up for a homemade recipe, try our Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

5. Caprese Salad

Who can say no to a fresh caprese salad? It's perfect for beating the heat and incredibly easy to make! Pair it with Frio Light to keep things cool and refreshing.

6.Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Spicy shrimp tacos add a kick to your picnic spread. Season the shrimp with chili powder, cumin, and paprika, then grill and serve in soft tortillas with avocado, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Pair with a Frio 6.0 to cool down the spiciness.

7. Charcuterie Board

Nothing says picnic quite like a charcuterie board. Often enjoyed with wine or rosé, we’ve decided to switch things up. A great charcuterie board features an array of cured meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, and fresh fruit for a delicious combination of flavors and textures. Enjoy it with Frio 6.0 to make each bite more satisfying.

8. Grilled Corn on the Cob

Grilled corn on the cob is a quintessential summer food. Whether you prefer it with butter or seasoned with lime juice and chili, grab a can of Frio Light and savor the deliciously sweet and smoky flavors of the corn alongside the refreshing lightness of Frio Light. This pairing is a must-try for your picnic.

9. Watermelon Salad

When you're craving something sweet and refreshing, a watermelon salad hits the spot. Mix chunks of juicy watermelon with feta cheese, mint leaves, and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Enjoy it with Frio 6.0 for a perfect pairing that enhances the salad's flavors.

10. Lemon Bars

End your picnic on a high note with tangy lemon bars. Pair them with Frio Light for a refreshing finale to your meal. It’s the perfect way to round off your outdoor chill session.
With these delicious food and Frio Beer pairings, your July picnics are sure to be a hit. So, grab your picnic blanket, pack your cooler with Frio Beer, and head outside for some unforgettable summer fun. Cheers to good times and great flavors!
