Beer and Cheese Recap: Fegley’s Brew Works

Fegley’s Brew Works have been producing world class beer in the Lehigh Valley since 1998, but have only been bottling for wholesale since 2009. Only in the last year have their beers show up on Philadelphia taps, but we predict that once they get firmly established, they are going to take off. Brewmaster Beau and

Beer and Cheese Recap: Southampton

Last week we welcomed back Bear to represent Southampton beers. They were, as usual, delicious, and we came up with some funky pairings. Double White with Tumin Rutulin: At first glance, this soft color of this beer might imply a mild taste, but this Southampton original is brewed with oats, coriander and orange peel. Bolder

Beer and Cheese Recap: Sly Fox, Part 2

Last night we had the very distinct pleasure of having the Beer Lass herself, Suzanne Woods, join us to present Sly Fox beers.

Beer and Cheese Recap: Troegs

When a company as reputable as Troegs comes to do a tasting, you can anticipate a great variety of high-quality beers. But last night, Nick hooked us up with the Scratch #27, a beer that is exclusive to the brewery and rarely found outside Harrisburg. It served as one half of our most surprising pairing

Beer and Cheese Recap: The Foodery

This week Glen and the boys from The Foodery (see pic) came by with four Spring seasonals to sample to our loyal customers. While you might interpret this as four wheat beers, each variety was distinctly different; their only uniting characteristic was that they were all delicious. Agave Wheat with Ewephoria: From Breckenridge Brewery in

Beer and Cheese Recap: Rogue

Sorry for the brief delay, the Easter Weekend thoroughly occupied our time. We are making it up to you, however, with our most progressive beer and cheese pairing to date. Sebbie brought some exquisite beer, as usual, including a couple we had not tasted before. Here’s what went down. Chipotle Ale with Rogue River Smokey
