Chimay Grand Classique Cheese + Chimay Grand Reserve 2011

0 comments

chimay cheeseThanks to our friend Matt Bollerman and a trip to the cheese counter at Whole Foods, we recently found ourselves in possession of both a bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve from 2011 and a portion of Chimay Grand Classique Cheese, hopefully not with quite as much age on it. We had been saving the bottle for a special occasion, and once the cheese found it’s way into our shopping cart we knew this pairing was what we were waiting for. It did however lead us to ponder the fact that it seems like many cheeses are now made with beer, but we have yet to see a beer made with cheese. Do you think we may be onto something, Long Island breweries? Yeah, probably not, but if we see any gorgonzola IPAs floating around this summer we want some credit. keep reading...

As you may have recently read, we here at Beer Loves Company cooked up a meal (detailing the experience and providing the recipe) here on our website. With only one cup (8 oz.) of beer required to make our stout stew and our chosen beer, Blind Bat Brewery Long Island Potato Stout, coming in 16.9 oz. bottles we had some left over. What better way to enjoy these “leftovers” than with some tasty cheese? Since the our stew, while not a difficult recipe, does take some time to cook you’ll definitely want to enjoy a snack and a beer while it simmers away. In the spirit of St. Patricks Day week, we selected a Dubliner Irish Cheddar made with Irish Stout and also a Fourme d’Ambert (aged over 60 days) to pair with the beers we would be pouring. Speaking of those beers, in addition to the Blind Bat Stout we also opened a can of the limited release 3Beans by Sixpoint Brewery which was a collaborative effort between Sixpoint, Stumptown Coffee Roasters & Mast Brothers Chocolate. We wanted to see how these beers from, “the Dark Side“, would taste with our two cheeses. keep reading...

Point of Origin Cheese – Sixpoint Brewery & Sprout Creek Farm (2012)

0 comments

20120910-202814.jpg
Today we are going to switch it up a bit and review a cheese called Point of Origin. But this isn’t just any cheese, it is a collaboration between Sixpoint Brewery from Brooklyn, NY and Spout Creek Farm from Poughkeepsie, NY. This raw cow milk cheese is being produced exclusively for Whole Foods in the Northeast. This cheese is aged in Sixpoint Diesel, a black IPA/stout combo, for 60 days. This process generally produces a more pungent rind and is fairly common in cheese making, though it usually uses brine as the liquid. The cheese has a cost of $24.99/pound, but you can get an entire round for under $15.00 as this is not a very heavy product. keep reading...
