Weekend Pairing

October 28, 2011

 

Welcome to our series highlighting the bountiful world of beer&cheese pairings. Join us each week as we explore a new turophilic delight paired with our seasonal and year-round brews.

Did you know—October is American Cheese Month—a celebration of the diverse world of North American-made cheeses. The American Cheese Society has more info about American Cheese Month here.

Avalanche Lamborn Bloomers Robiola paired w/ Hades Belgian Style Ale

Robiola is typically an Italian soft-ripened cheese, but this one is made right here in Colorado at Avalanche Cheese Company.  Lamborn Bloomers has a tangy taste, infused with the wild herbs on which the animals pasture.  This cheese is aged just over a month and displays a silky, well-balanced interior wrapped in a beautiful white-molded rind.

Hades Belgian Style Ale is a well-balanced crisp ale that doesn’t over power the robiola.

This cheese can be found in Denver at Whole Foods Cherry Creek, The Truffle Cheese Shop or St. Kilian’s Cheese Shop.
