CANTONNIER CHEESE’S fruity, effervescent flavour springs to life when paired with a sour ale, like Berliner Weisse.


The creamy, tangy taste profile of SOFT FRESH GOAT CHEESE is a perfect match for floral, citrusy Witbier.


Create a woodsy combo by pairing rich, nutty
with an earthy, spicy IPA.


Buttery, earthy
cheese goes wonderfully with a full-bodied Belgian Tripel, known for its spicy and citrusy notes.


Go big on decadence: creamy, salty BLEUBRY CHEESE is the ideal match for a full-bodied stout with coffee or chocolate notes.


Soft washed rind
is rustic with a buttery, melty profile. Serve with a malty amber beer with a touch of sweetness.

Chef's Tips

GOAT CHEESES go well with earthy sides like nuts, apples, and olives.

Serve SOFT BLOOMY RIND OR WASHED RIND CHEESES with pears or sweet pickles.

FIRM CHEESES go well with dry fruits, nuts, mushrooms and pickles.

BLUE CHEESES are divine with honey, figs or roasted red pepper.
