Don’t forget the cheese; Session #51 Friday

The SessionA quick reminder that Session #51 is Friday, and Jay Brooks is hosting what he calls “The Great Online Beer & Cheese-Off.”

Get some cheese — perhaps Maytag Blue, Widmer 1-Year Aged Cheddar and Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog, remembering nobody has ever been kicked out of the Session for showing up with the wrong cheese — and some beer. Have a few friends over, or not. Taste. Takes notes, also optional. Post your thoughts on May 6. Read what everybody else tasted, paired and thought. Get some more cheese. Repeat the rest of the steps.

Those interested can participate in a second round two weeks later. Jay explains: “Whoever wants to participate, pick up some of the other beers that were suggested, and try them with the same three cheeses and do a follow up blog post on Friday, May 20 — let’s call it Session #51.5 — to explore more fully pairing cheese and beer.”

    Good thing nobody’s been kicked out for the wrong cheese, because pickings are slim down here. Still undecided about whether to approximate the suggested cheeses bast I can or split off with three locally made ones.

    It’s Jay’s baby, and there is the #51.5 part – you pair a beer and a cheese nobody can get and it is of little ‘use” two weeks down the road – but I’d be happy to read about pairing homebrewed beer and homemade cheese. If the account were well written, of course.

    Some lucky folks in NY could go to the Greenmarket for farm brews and farm cheeses now,,,,,, 🙂
