Having a Beer and Cheese Tasting

June 7, 2011

Last June, I wrote a post about pairing beer and cheese, and I saw a blog on the Wine and Beer of Washington State that goes along with this. A group of people got together and had a beer and cheese tasting.

Admittedly, I don’t care for beer, so one could attempt this instead with wine. What was kind of scary to me and their tasting was that they had 13 beers to taste! I also find it ironic that they stressed Washington beers, but didn’t get Washington cheeses. They only choose five cheeses to work with.

I was delighted by the categories that they voted on for the pairings:

  • Best Overall Cheese for Beer Pairing
  • Best Overall Beer for Cheese Pairing
  • Best Beer Paired with [Specific Cheese]

Man, I need to have a cheese tasting this summer!
