September 20 at 7:30 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St (near Houston): Cheese and Beer Rules!
Cheeses and beers pair exceptionally well together, but what are some rules of thumb for matching them? What cheese balances the hoppiness of an IPA or what beer goes best with a earthiness and pepper of a classic blue? Please join us September 20th at 7:30 at Culturefix, 9 Clinton St., as we celebrate the marriage of grains and curds with six wonderful cheeses accompanied by six Sixpoint brews. In addition as part of New York City Craft Beer Week, attendees will receive free Sixpoint for the rest of the evening. This event starts at 7:30. Tickets are $25; for tickets please visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/196694
September 22 at 7 at The 92nd St. Y (92 & Lex): Better Than Wine, a Cheese and Beer Pairing.
Cheeses are often a good match for Belgian beers, and at this event Maggie Fuller of 12% Imports, a company that specializes in small producer Belgian and Scandinavian beer will pair eight of her favorite beers with eight of my favorite cheeses. We’ll discuss the fromage and brews individually and why they work together. Tickets are $40 and available via the 92nd St. Y box office, http://www.92y.org/Uptown/Event/BetterThanWine-Beer-CheesePair-1.aspx
