With its much wider flavor range than wine, craft beer is quickly being recognized as a potent pairing partner for that other favorite fermented food - cheese. Tonight we are joined by Prud'homme Master Beer Sommelier Dan Schmidt and Taste of Craft (tasteofcraft.ca) owner Jen Whyte as they lead us through a fun and informative evening of artisan cheese and craft beer pairing. Learn the personal stories behind these libations and cheeses all while they teach you how to mindfully taste and deliciously pair. Relish owner, Donna-Marie will also turn some of these cheeses into tasteful dishes that will be served alongside each pairing. It's guaranteed to be more than just a little cheese and beer - it's a unique and seriously tasty experience.
