The Grey Lodge Pub
Sunday Night Special
Beer and Cheese Pairing
169 cheeses! 169 beers! 169 weeks! It's a beer and cheese odyssey!
Scoats's wonderful wife gave him a copy of Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese: A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings by Tenaya Darlington for Christmas. The author lists 169 artisan cheeses and Scoats wants to try them all. He suspects that he is not the only one. To keep things interesting we will pop around the book, serving a different cheese every Sunday until we taste them all.
Tenaya will be here on March 15th to sell and sign her book. It's just $20, which is $5 off list price.
Week Five: 08 March 2015
Berkswell, page 44.
Unpasteurised sheep cheese from England. The moulds of cheeses are left in plastic kitchen colanders which give the cheese its unusal shape. Hints of caramel and a citrus tang on the finish.
Andechs Dunkel Weisse. Tenaya suggests a wheat beer. On tasting it, we were thinking a malty, nutty beer. Why not both in the same beer? Andechs Dunkel Weisse is one of the best dunkel weisses we have ever drank. 5% ABV.
