Speciality Welsh Craft Ales paired with Organic Cheeses
We all know that cheese and wine are a match made I heaven… but with a whole world of exciting new beers, why should we limit ourselves with pairing cheese with only one type of alcoholic beverage?
Cat’s Eye Ale & Calon Wen Mellow Cheddar
Cat’s Eye (4.4%) – A dark, dry mild with a great malt forward flavour. Combining biscuit and subtle chocolate and liquorice flavours with low bitterness and a rounded hop flavour. The sharp notes of this craft ale matched with the nutty and creamy flavours of the mellow cheddar enhances both flavours to create a pair matched in heaven.
Rockhopper Pale Bitter & Perl Wen
Rockhopper (3.9%) – Classic pale amber bitter, with a light malt base and a spicy fruitiness from the Challenger, Bramling Cross and Chinook hops. Perl Wen has a citrusy flavour that compliments this spiced ale beautifully.
Tiger’s Eye IPA & Organic Calon Wen Extra Mature Cheddar
Tiger’s Eye (4.6%) – A pale, fruity & tropical IPA. Aroma hopped with Rakau and Motueka, then dry hopped with Rakau and Styrian Wolf. The fruitiness of the IPA combined with the rich punch of the cheddar creates the perfect sweet and savoury match.
