Sunday Night Special Beer & Cheese Pairing: Week 7 (of 169)

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.

Week Seven: 22 March 2015

Challerhocker, page 119.

Translating to ''sitting in the cellar'', Challerhocker is washed in wine and spices and then aged for a minimum of 10 months, providing a remarkable depth of flavor. With so much going on, this may well become your favorite cheese ever.

Flying Fish Exit 4 Trippel. Tenaya recommends Exit 4 specifically. Being a tripel, Exit 4 is both huge but a little light, and of course fruity from the abbey style yeast. Sounds like a great match to us. ABV 9.5%

Beer and Cheese $13
