Drinking beer with cheese has gone on for centuries and why not as the flavours can complement each other perfectly.

As part of North London CAMRA's online activities during lock down, one of their leisure socials is being transformed to a beer and cheese tasting, which will be held on CAMRA's Red (on) Lion. It's free to attend; you just need to bring your own beer and cheese.

The tasting will be led by  Master Trainer, Guild of Beer Writers Member & Beer Judge, Christine Cryne.

 The session will cover how to match beer with cheese and go through three different cheeses teamed with three different styles of beer. This fun event starts at 2. 30pm and will last about 90 minutes.

What participants need for the session

  • Three cheeses:

            - Brie or Cambert (should be fresh, not aged)

            -  Mature Cheddar

            - Stilton

  • Three beers: 

            -  Traditional Bitter (amber or mid brown)

            - Golden ale 

            - Porter or Stout

Beers should be circa 4.5%ABV or above

Participants can choose whatever beer they wish of the above styles, particularly if they wish to support local brewers. If this is problematical, then here are some beers that can be purchased via supermarkets:

  • Traditional Bitter: Fuller’s London Pride, Marston’s Pedigree, Black Sheep Ale, Shepherd Neame Spitfire, Greene King Abbot, 
  • Golden ale: St Austell Proper Job, Thornbridge Jaipur IPA,  Oakham Citra
  • Porter or Stout: Fuller’s London Porter or Black Cab; Guinness West Indies Porter,
