When beer and cheese meet, good things happen… at least that was our thought when we teamed up with Sixpoint Craft Ales to bring one of our dorky-but-delicious cheese experiments to life!
Join us at 61 Local on Wednesday, February 8th for a fermentation celebration! We’ll be tasting four beer washed cheeses aged at Saxelby Cheesemongers paired with four rare Sixpoint beers they’ve been washed with.
For the past two months at our Red Hook cheese cave, we have been washing four different batches of Hooligan (a delicious raw cows’ milk stinker from Cato Corner Farm in CT) with four different types of beer from our neighbors over at Sixpoint Craft Ales to see how the beer wash influences the flavor of the finished cheese.
The beers in question are Signal, a limited edition smoked IPA, Gorilla Warfare, a coffee porter made with Ethiopia Yirgacheffe roasted by Gorilla Coffee in Park Slope, Gemini, a lighter and zestier IPA, and Dinkle, Sixpoint’s one-year-old spelt wine. The cheese & beer pairing will be rounded out by a spread of snackables from 61’s lineup of local goodies.
Come on out and eat, drink, and be merry!
Today we’ll be talking with Dean Sparks, the dairy evangelist behind NY Milk
to talk about the latest and the greatest in their crusade to save local dairy farms.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and the smell of cheese is in the air!
