Sunday Special Beer & Cheese Pairing: Week 16 Hooligan and Weyerbacher Verboten

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 Sixteen: 24 May 2015

Hooligan, page 148. Hooligan is a ripe washed-rind cow milk cheese from Connecticut. It has a soft creamy interior and a gorgeous orange rind.

Weyerbacher Verboten. Tenyata calls for a Belgian Pale Ale. We already did Weyerbacher Verboten, but since this beer is being phased out, we wanted to enjoy it while we could. ABV 6%

Beer and Cheese $13
