CALLING ALL BEER & CHEESE LOVERS!
By Patrick Evans-Hylton

I hosted our second Hops & Cheese: A Beer and Cheese Paring Adventure recently at the TASTE Greenbrier location in Chesapeake. Along with a bevy of beverages from Chesapeake-based Big Ugly Brewing were five different perfectly paired cheeses. Here’s the cheeses we sampled, with a little bit of information about each, along with my Big Ugly Brewing beer pairings, and some other pairing ideas, too.

Since the eighteenth century, beer has been a common beverage in Virginia. George Washington loved his porter – but only if it was brewed in America – and Thomas Jefferson considered beer one of the necessary “table drinks.” We concur. And lots of other folks apparently do too, because August is designated Virginia Craft Beer Month.
