Cheese Pairing | Week of April 7th

Lager-Frere-Fumant

Brooklyn Lager with Frere Fumant. Gently smoky and buttery, this sheep’s milk cheese is from upstate NY. Its smoky flavors will pair nicely with the malty overtones of the Lager.

Read This: New York Times Goes Inside Chefs’ Fridges, Finds Brooklyn Beer

Read-this-new-york-times-magazine-fridges

(Photo by Eric Helgas)

The New York Times Magazine did a photo expose on 11 of New York Cities’ top chefs’ refrigerators. It allowed us to take a glance deep into their souls as we peruse their personal stores, trying to catch a glimpse of what inspires their genius. A congratulations goes out to Bryce Shuman of Betony, Einat Admony of Balaboosta, and Jody Williams of Buvette. (though maybe the credit goes to her girlfriend) These progressive chefs had the foresight to have Brooklyn brews in their fridge, ensuring them as purveyors of good taste and assuredly wonderful hosts. As much as we love Maysville, we need to have an intervention for Kyle Knall. And as for Amanda Cohen— we will party with you any time.

Hopefully, when the New York Times reaches out to us for photos of our beer fridge we’ll have food from some of these fantastic restaurants on our shelves.

Cheese Pairing | Week of March 31st

Brooklyn Wild Streak with Andante Minuet. Buttery, silken and smooth, this triple crème goat’s milk cheese is from California. It’s richness and balance will complement the complex flavors of the Wild Streak nicely.
