    I just cut off a big chunk of asiago cheese to accompany the second Amber Bock I just opened.

    Dinner is served.

    I don't know 'bout you, but I believe beer and cheese are meant to be eternally paired together.

    Anyone else have any preferences? With beer that is?

    I don't think I've ever had Asiago cheese but Amber Bock is my favorite beer.

    Not to be confused with "whine and cheese" thread... :whistling:

    I think cheese is meant to be together with bread. Then you can add beer and have a wonderful threesome of taste.

    I hovered over the thread title and the first thing I saw was, "I cut. . ." Beer and cheese and "I cut" does not make a pretty picture. I was sure that this was going to be a bathroom humor thread.

    dubliner.....now that looks like it's worth a try. A hard white cheddar type cheese, with hints of swiss and parmesan.

    Now I just need to settle on a nice ale......

    We just wolfed down some cheese and crackers with our beer...Yum!

    We had a cheddar from Scotland, a peppered goat cheese and an excellent camembert. I'm drinking Ballast Point Black Marlin Porter...The BEST! Wife is drinking Boddingtons.

    I've mentioned this before, but I sell cheese for a living. Cheese pays my mortgage!

    If I can make a suggestion to go with beer. . . Cotswold cheese. It's a double glocester with onions and chives (it's known as pub cheese in England)

    The best cheese I have ever had is Cougar Gold from the WSU dairy. It ain't cheap but it's good stuff.

    Mmmmmmm, Beer and Cheese....

    That is one of the reasons I like to make pilgrimages to places like "Flying Saucer"....so many wonderful beers and wicked good sausage and cheese trays. If you have one near by give them a try. When I lived in Little Rock I spend a lot of time at that place...because there isnt that much to do in Little Rock, back in Texas, not so much but I am always happy when I do go.

    I am a fan of Dubliner, too. Not beer drinker, however. They are all variations on a bad theme.

    Mr. NanH is a huge beer fan. His favorite is Highland Oatmeal Porter. He says being a non-beer drinker is my worst flaw.

    The finest meal I have ever had was beer, cheese and bread in the Swiss alps. Alone each is wonderful, but together it's perfect.

    Cheeses go great with wine or beer. I like asiago and parmigiano regiano with any hoppy ale or IPA, or a rich red wine that has good acid structure. These flavor rich cheeses can easily overpower many milder beers though. Try a fontina cheese with an ale or porter, maybe on thin slices of toasted bread.

    Best of all with beer is a soft cheese hot off the stove. Yesterday we made a fresh mozzarella and had the warm curds with a home brewed Aussie ale. Fantastic! :cheers:
