Events: If you’ve never tried to pair your favorite beer with good cheese, you’re missing out on a treat. Beer and cheese go together in amazing fashion. Take a bite of cheese, then a sip of beer – the beer cleanses the palate and prepares it for another bite of cheese.

And when you match the right cheese with the right beer, it’s a taste symphony. If  you’re curious, check out Beer Chef Bruce Paton’s next event:
