Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog and Denver Pale Ale

Humboldt Fog is a pasteurized goat cheese with a beautiful, bloomy-white coat that mellows into an ashy gray rind resembling coastal fog. This cheese has a distinctive Morbier-like layer of vegetable ash that runs through its center. Humboldt Fog displays an ultimate balance of tangy, smooth, dry, rich, voluptuousness – the delicate dance that leaves one mystified.

Denver Pale Ale is a world-renowned, classic pale ale with a malty middle and an equally hearty complement of hop aroma, flavor and bitterness.  5.4% ABV

The malty middle of Denver Pale Ale and an equally hearty complement of hop work symbiotically with this silky siren.
