Easter Food Pairing - Flying Fish and Fruit loaf BlogEnjoy this beer-infused fruit loaf paired with Flying Fish flavoured beer.

This fruit loaf is rich in fruity flavors (and fruit) and is perfectly balanced with Flying Fish Crushed Orange. Try this easy recipe at home to enjoy this long weekend!

Flying Fish is a true beer without malty heaviness and pronounced bitterness of many beers. It’s light and refreshingly crisp with a hint of orange and fruit sweetness. The beer and loaf complement each other very subtly, and make a great pairing for a long, sunny autumn afternoon.

  • 500g mixed cake fruit

  4. Sift in the rest of the flour and mix well.
