The Lady’s studies continue today and right now she is deep in Cheese and Beer pairings, which scare her a bit as she doesn’t drink beer. The document she is studying at the moment is a quick study in how to pair cheeses and beers. The article was written by our friend, Janet Fletcher.
Here are a few of Janet’s pairings for those of you who prefer beer to wine when enjoying cheese:
|Abondance (Alpine-style)||Maibock (Malty)|
|Piave (Hard, Aged cow’s milk)||Belgian Tripel (Strong, complex)|
|Manchego (Aged Sheep’s milk)||Oktoberfest (Malty)|
|Chimay (Washed-Rind)||Belgian Golden Ale (Strong, fruity, spicy)|
|Keen’s Cheddar (Tangy cheddar)||American Pale Ale (hoppy)|
|Cabot Clothbound (Mellow Cheddar)||Amber Ale (Balanced or malty)|
|Beemster XO (Goudas)||Allagash Dubbel (Strong malty ales)|
|Shropshire Blue (Mellow, buttery blues)||Belgian Quadupel (Strong, malty)|
