    Beer and Cheese pairing

    Most of us are probably familiar with various wine and cheese pairings, but I would like to start a discussion of beer and cheese pairings.

    My son is a fan drinking a saison with chevre.

    I had some fontinella with a scottish-style ale last night that I thought was a good match.
    (though the ale did not go well with a sharp cheddar I also had out - I think a hoppier beer would have been better)

    What are your favourite beet and cheese pairings?

    We tend to go for full flavors for cheeses and pair with heavy hooped brews such as SN's Torpedo or many of the Stone Brewing offerings. Sharp and extra sharp cheddars.

    English cheddar with any full bodied ale, Guiness (stout generally) or a porter. We finally have a proper cheese monger in town now, it's great to experiment!

    I read this thread as "Bear and Cheese pairing" which I thought would be fascinating.

    As it is, I have no experience with pairing beer and cheese, but I always love learning more about flavors.

    I'll have to try the English cheddar with a Scottish-style beer. I'm sure it would work better than the sharp cheddar.

    I don't know about mixing the English with the Scottish - my parents tried that and, MAN!

    English Stilton cheese and barley wine. Actually, I think barley wine goes well with many cheeses.
    And I like hefeweizen with limburger. Of course the beer should never be too cold.

    Hi

    This is SLIGHTLY off topic, but I like Smoked Cheddar, Smoked or Summer Sausage on Triscuit crackers with Scotch. Preferably the really smokey Scotch. I haven't tried it with any dark beers YET.

    Don't forget there are Smoked Beers such as smoked porters and Rauch Bier from Germany.
