Best Beer With Your Ramen Noodle Bowl

Hitachino Nest White Ale at Toki Underground
1234 H St NE, (202) 388-3086
Cold beer and hot ramen are a combination everyone from college students to overworked adults can enthusiastically get behind. But which beer can act like a blank canvas for the aggressive flavors of Toki Underground’s vegetarian ramen? As Tasting Beer author Randy Mosher wrote, “When in doubt, go Belgian.” Hitachino Nest White Ale, a Belgian-style Japanese beer, features coriander, orange peel, nutmeg, and orange juice. It’s mellow, rustic, and provides a match that melds well with the ramen’s dominant flavors of kombu and shiitake mushrooms.
