Drink Seminar: Fermentation is Magic:  Beer and Cheese Pairing

Drink Seminar: Fermentation is Magic: Beer and Cheese Pairing


Presenter: Ken Beattie

Let others debate whether the creation of craft beers and artisanal cheeses is more science than art, or if innovation is more important than tradition.  We're here for the practical component!  Ken Beattie, Executive Director of the BC Craft Brewers Guild, leads this seminar devoted to exploring the endless flavour and texture combinations possible with beer and cheese pairings.  Thanks to the transformative magic of the fermentation process, beer and cheese range from light and fresh to deeply funky, and while the typical approach is to pair like with like, sometimes opposites attract in unexpected ways.  Guests will sample 6 craft beers paired with Canadian cheeses.
