10 May 2015: Sunday Night Special Beer and Cheese Pairing: Week 15 of 169. Midnight Moon and Dogfish Head Midas Touch

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 Fourteen: 10 May 2015

Midnight Moon, page 216. This goat cheese is aged six months or more. An ivory-colored cheese that is dense and smooth with a slight crunch of protein crystals that form naturally with aging.. 

Dogfish Head Midas Touch. Tenaya especially recommends Midas Touch with this one. Midas Touch Golden Elixir is based on the residue found on the drinking vessels in King Midas’ tomb. It highlights the known ingredients of barley, white Muscat grapes, honey and saffron. Somehwere between a beer, wine and mead, ABV 9%

Beer and Cheese $15
