Temperature: Cheese is at its best when served at room temperature. Pull your cheese out of the fridge 30 minutes prior to serving to bring out the richest flavor & best consistency. Your beer will also deliver its fullest flavor when it’s not ice cold.
Body: When you’re pairing, start with lighter cheeses and lower-alcohol beers before moving on to heavier tastes and higher-alcohol brews.
Contrast: Pair to complement, but also to contrast. For example, try a sharp cheddar with a malty, mellow brown ale. This will add an element of the unexpected to your pairings and create surprising new tastes.
