Cheese, Glorious Cheese

We have some new stock in this week…gorgeous fresh organic cheese from Connage Highland Dairy. We had our Beer, Cheese and Tunes event not long ago which was a collaboration between ourselves and Connage. As it was such a success, we decided to get in on the action and we now have some of their cheeses stocked in the brewery shop. To help things along, we have paired our beers with each of the cheeses, so now you can have a lovely organic melt in the mouth combo! Read on and decide what you will be going for…

If you fancy a Blonde, go for a slice of Cromal – with it’s citrusy notes, grassy aromas and fresh and mild flavours, these are a great match.

Our Red Kite Ale is great teamed with Clava, with a slight sweetness balanced by the creamy brie.

The Gouda, with its Eastern Spice harmonises with the fruitiness of the Goldeneye Pale Ale.

And finally, the Scotch Ale is perfect with the Smoked Dunlop. The bittersweet ale is complimented by the smokiness of the cheese.

Which combo will you go for?
