Steak is a heavy dish that is rich with different flavours, making it a great combination with heavier beers. Whichever way it is prepared, it will need to be paired with a beer that can match its intensity.
When preparing a standard grilled steak, a red ale would be a good match. Red ales are heavy with a roasted aroma allowing them to enhance the taste of grilled juicy meat.
Porters are also a good pair with a steak, especially a porterhouse steak. The full flavour of a porter is able to compete with the rich meaty texture of a steak from rare to well done.
Rare steak and steak tartar is best paired with a stout brew. The smoothness of the stout compares with the texture of raw meat and is strong enough to enhance the flavours.
Taste is very subjective and what works for one person might not work for another. If it tastes good to you, then go for it.
