Hosting a Pairing Party?

If you plan to host a pairing party, we recommend choosing 3-5 cheeses (maximum) to taste with a small number of beer selections. Here’re a few tips on how to get started:

  • Start by allowing the cheese to reach room temperature. Nothing kills the flavor of a fine goat milk cheese like pulling it straight from the refrigerator.
  • Now, smell the cheese and then the beer.
  • Take a bite of the cheese and before swallowing it, take a sip of beer, and allow the two to marry in your mouth.
  • Swallow and breath deeply through your nose. Ask yourself, "Are they better together?" If not, throw the bottle out the window. Kidding... just making sure you are reading this.
  • If you like, take notes after each pairing so that you remember the differences during your tasting.

Beer and cheese pairings, while subjective, can be fun to share with family and friends. Encourage guests to find descriptive words to identify what they are tasting, and above all, don’t take things too seriously. We like to have fun here at Cypress Grove!
