Craft Beer and Cheese
Some thoughts on beer/cheese pairing:
If I'm drinking a rather unremarkable beer then I don't mind pairing it with cheese. However if it's an excellent beer that I really want to fully taste and enjoy I won't let cheese get anywhere near my mouth.
Beer and cheese pairings are becoming very popular. Culture, the cheese magazine for cheese retails, etc. does many articles on cheese/beer.
My cheese shop has many beer pairing events with local pubs and in house as well.
Recently did a 5 beer Appalachian Brewing event with 10 cheeses.
