Cape Town - Whether served in a frosty pint or in a bottle, beer and burger are best friends wherever you might go. These besties compliment each other, adding layers of flavours through the burger’s rich juices, while also cleansing your palate and urging you to take another bite, then another cool sip.

But like any other perfect combination, pairing burger and beer comes with its own difficulties. Some beer styles overwhelm the burger, while others get lost in the meat.

And doing exactly the opposite from the latter - also affirming what we mean by "local is lekker" - is SA's award-winning, Carling Black Label beer. 

According to an infographic put together by John Slots, this UK import proves time and time again why it is still dubbed the "Champion Beer" and much better, when paired with the nation's unique meat sensation, a Springbok burger - then it's a match made in beer-and-burger heaven!

As a result, Black Label proves that sometimes the best beer is not determined by cost – check out the full details of the John Slots' infographic below to see what we’re talking about.
