Get Ready For Christmas with The Cheeseman. Entertain guests and friends with our handy beer guide.
Beer and cheese have a natural affinity, they share similar flavours: nutty, tangy, floral, and earthy. They can both offer a sharp, dry texture or a smooth and creamy one.
A few basic guidelines can help guide your choices; here are a few suggestions to get you started:
- Delicate beers with young, fresh cheeses
- Malty beers with nutty, aged cheeses
- Highly hopped, bitter beers with tart, sharp cheeses, especially farmhouse cheddars
- Strong, sweet beers with blue cheeses
