Beer & Cheese, Cheese & Beer - PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

THM | Apr 10, 2003 12:08 PM

Having a beer tasting shindig soon and I'm in need of advice, suggestions, etc on pairing beers of all kinds with cheeses of all kinds...

I'm concocting a cheese PLATE, as opposed to actually COOKING the cheese (so no fondues, braises, broths, etc)...I want to know what goes with what, what doesn't, and why...Educate me...

Please be as specific as possible, with brand names if you can, and also general ideas as far as what's compatible, etc.

Say you were to pair five different beers (stouts, lagers, ales, pilsners, bocks, etc) with five different cheeses (goats, sheeps, cows, hard, soft, young, aged, etc), which ones would you choose?

Thanks in advance, cheesy beerheads!
