A killer angle of the Christmas steps from @carolyn.eaton, giving the space to voice that no Christmas songs should be played until the 1st of December! Also s/o to our #tuesdaytreats winner @lucia_darcy#livebristol
For today's #tastingtuesday, we want to offer up some cheese pairings for our new dry-hopped saison Ponderosa Pasture! We have tweaked the recipe just a bit to bring out more of the fruity esters that we love from a traditional saison, while reducing the bitterness just a touch to allow the subtle malt base to shine through, while still allowing the dry hopped fruitiness to tingle your tastebuds. Try the new recipe this friday at the taproom on tap and IN BOTTLES ON SATURDAY!
We love pairing different cheeses with a beer like this, because the different facets of the flavor profile of the beer can be quickly contrasted against each other with different cheeses. Start with something subtle like a manchego Manchego has a subtle nutty flavor with some brininess to it, and this starts to allow some of the fruit flavors of the saison come through without overpowering it.
A nice sharp cheddar can push the tasting another direction, as the more crisp flavors of the cheddar will compete with the spices in the saison and actually create a more malty perception of the beer, bringing out the colorado-malted pilsner base.
Most people wouldn't typically pair a Blue cheese with a Saison, as the intense blue flavor and heavy creaminess can dull the flavor of the beer. Typically these pair better with more bitter beers, however, we LOVE this pairing with the Ponderosa Pasture, as the higher bitterness and hop punch of this beer will hold up to the creaminess and heaviness of the cheese, and do a wonderful job of clearing the palate in between bites.
Finally, we always suggest bringing something sweet to the table with a cheese pairing, like a fruit, jam, or compote of some sort. The goal of this sweet treat is to help clear the palate from the salinity and creaminess of the cheese, effectively hitting the 'reset' button in your mouth before you move to the next pairing. Leave the crackers aside and try some cherries instead!
