Beer and Cheese 101

In this wonderful world of beer it’s not complete without food. The two go hand in hand! It’s like the beach and the ocean, stars and night, summer and bikini’s. While any one of these things are great on its’ own it’s a whole lot better when paired up. With this month’s Chow Hall I decided we’d talk about one of the oldest, easiest, overlooked pairings ever; beer and cheese.

I’m talking about pairing food and beer from the same regions of the…

The Wonderful World of Belgian Beer

For this session of Chow Hall I thought I would break down the popular styles of Belgian Beer and show some amazing pairings that will really bring them to life. We'll be focusing on Belgian Singles, Dubbels, Triples, and Quadruples. While there are many other styles to Belgian ales these are by far the most popular and easiest to remember; just think of the sequential order.

Starting from the bottom and working our way up we have Belgian Singles. Typically this beer is rarely brewed…
