September 28 at 7:30 at d.b.a Brooklyn, 113 N. 7th St. (between Berry & Wythe) Pretty Things v. Funky Cheese.
Okay not all of these cheeses here will be of sheep’s milk nor will they be necessarily Spanish or Portuguese, but they will be delicious and funky and they should pair nicely with the beers of the Pretty Things Brewery in Cambridge Massachusetts. I’ll present seven cheeses and Ray Deter will present seven PT beers chosen to match them. Tickets are $30 and available at BPT, https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/121988
September 30 at 7:30 at Stella Manhattan Bistro, 213 Front St. (between Peck Slip and Beekman): Belgian Beers and Iberian Cheeses.
It’s a natural! The crisp sweetness of many Belgian beers makes them an ideal match for the salty, vegetal flavor profiles of Spanish and Portuguese cheeses. At this event, I’ll present eight cheeses and Dave Herman (Porchetta, Spuyten Duyvil and a general all around beer authority) will present about Belgian or Belgian inspired beers to match. Tickets are $30 and available at BPT, https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/122000
