Beer and Cheese Guide

Milwaukee Magazine - - AUGUST - By ANN CHRISTENSON and CHRIS DROSNER

The meet­ing of two Wis­con­sin paragons. Read about in­dus­try trail­blaz­ers, sam­ple our ex­pert pair­ings and en­gross your­self in two evolv­ing ar­ti­san cul­tures.

What binds beer and cheese to­gether enough to make a cover story out of the pair? Sure, they’re quin­tes­sen­tial Wis­con­sin prod­ucts, but what hooks us is the cul­ture. We’re not talk­ing about bac­te­ria or yeast – though beer and cheese do have those – but a cul­ture of ar­ti­san pro­duc­ers who push bound­aries to cre­ate ex­cit­ing new fla­vors. A cul­ture of de­voted afi­ciona­dos who go to sur­pris­ing lengths for their hobby. A cul­ture of ex­plor­ing, tast­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing. Over the next 10 pages, we walk you through that world. You’ll find pair­ings, trends, guides to shop­ping and pre­sent­ing, and a look at some of the peo­ple be­hind the prod­ucts. Dig into this ed­i­ble, quaf­fa­ble opus.
