The juicy citrus-inspired IPA has become the de facto Atlanta IPA. Second Self's Citrus IPA packs flavors of grapefruit and orange peel into a beer that has more aroma than bitterness. With a dry clean finish, Citrus IPA goes well with dishes that benefit from added fruit. For this pork chop dish featuring grits, arugula and muscadines, Citrus IPA will complement the arugula bitterness while not detracting from the fruity flavor of the muscadines. The clean dry finish will make you ready for the next bite of pork chop.

Chardonnay - Napa Valley, California
You often hear of pork being the ‘other white meat,’ and it is very versatile in that it can pair with white wines just as well as reds. Due to the accompanying ingredients, a structured, oak-driven chardonnay will be perfect against the backdrop of the pork. Notes of ripe golden apples and butter will complement the muscadine salad while echoing the herbaceousness of arugula.
