Because The Super Bowl Is Cheesy…

Instead of filling your gut with nasty nacho cheese spread, why not pair some really good cheese with it’s beer best friend? Everybody wins.

Beth at Eastern District (1053 Manhattan Ave) has some great pairing suggestions:

• Lazy Lady Farm’s Trickle Down, a lightly aged goat’s milk cheese flavored with ginger and poppy seeds; with Southern Tier Eurotrash Pils, a crisp lager.

• Consider Bardwell Farm’s Rupert, a firm, tangy cow’s milk cheese; with Greenport’s hoppy Other Side IPA.

Fiscalini Vintage Cheddar, sharp and clean; with Ithaca’s aromatic Flower Power IPA.

Jasper Hill Farm’s soft, pungent Willoughby; with Brooklyn Brewery’s Blast! a well-balanced, not-bitter, double IPA.

Lady In Blue, also from Lazy Lady Farm, a creamy, spicy blue; with Captain Lawrence’s malty brown Winter Ale.

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
