This week we jump into the Barleywine world of craft beer, with Avery Brewing Co. Hog Heaven, which tends to be a bit of a daunting style for newer craft beer drinkers. We put our trust in the amazing-ness of [ Avery Brewing Co ] , to help us cross over into the big boy beers.
We pair the beer with three strong European Cheeses ( English Blue Stilton, Swiss Emmentaler – aged 100 days, and a French Comte ) , and talk about cheeses with crackers, glassware, and how bottle size can sometimes affect the taste of the beer.
We also discuss the difference between aperitif pairings and digestif pairings.
