Tapas may also be more Americanized or international in character:

Beer matches: Saison blends well with most foods. Lighter foods generally merge well with Wheat Beers. IPA, Barleywine, and Bitters can carry foods heavier in fat. Gueuze, Weissbier and Pilsners marry up well with seafood, egg and vegetable dishes.

Tapas are treats that favor diversity, flexibility and freedom of lifestyle. With the many styles of beer available, you may wish to do your own experimentation to discover the flavors most appealing to your tastebuds.
