When it comes to consuming cheese with alcohol, the pairing that first comes to mind is usually wine and cheese—but the Flying Dog Brewery and Crisafulli’s Cheese recently teamed up to host an event to show off just how well the flavors of cheese and beer can complement one another.
The tasting event was held at Flying Dog Brewery, and it offered an exploration of five different types of beer with five cheese types to match each one. For instance, Flying Dog Brewery's Snake Dog 20 Indian Pale Ale was matched with a cheese from England with chives inside of it.
With the expansion of craft beer culture around the world, consumers are now open to exploring new beer pairings. Other unusual tasting events that have been held with a focus on beer have included pairings of cookies, potato chips and even insects.
