Sunday Night Special Beer & Cheese Pairing: Week 9

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 Nine: 05 April 2015

Pecorino Romano, page 194.
Pecorino Romano is a hard, salty Italian sheep's milk cheese, usually used for grating. To make it more agreeable for eating as a snack, our kitchen has accompanied it with with assorted antipasto.

Troegs Nugget Nectar.Tenaya recommnds a hoppy beer and we agree that a hop bomb is what's needed to stand up to this strong cheese. We've picked Troegs Nugget Nectar because this great imperial pale ale is in season right now and we were able to score some. ABV 7.5%

Beer and Cheese $12
