Cheese + Beer 101

We all know the legendary bond that wine and cheese have in our minds, but have you ever sat down and really tasted beer and cheese together? If not, you should! Beer and cheese have a long history as mates, dating back to northern European monasteries of the middle ages, but only in the last decade has this trend found America. At this event, we'll be pairing five domestic cheeses with five local craft beers, and exploring the rainbow of flavor combinations that result. After all, why does wine get to have all the fun?
