Its all about wine and cheese right? WRONG....
The huge variety of beer styles, textures, flavours and aromas give us endless possibilities to pair these two masters of craft. Many cheese experts openly promote beer as the perfect partner to cheese. Indie Ales and the fiendishly clever fellas from The French Comte in Borough Market (http://www.thefrenchcomte.co.uk/) are putting our balls on the proverbial cheese board to bring you some cunning cheese and beer combos between here and Comte.
6 beer and cheese pairings to totally electrify your taste buds and bring cheese to life! This is a perfect intro if you are new to cheese and beer pairings, or just like cheese, or need an excuse to try some great craft beer.
The French Comte sell artisanal products imported direct from France and are delighted to count Raymond Blanc, British Airways 1st and Business Class, Langham Hotels and Shangri La Hotels among their customers.

Beer & Cheese Tasting
Sarafa attended in February 2014,
reviewed on 14 February 2014
As a girl more at home with a large glass of vino than any type of ale I attended this event thinking I'd probably only eat the cheese and spit the beer.
How wrong I was! And indeed, in the beer tasting world one doesn’t spit. Charlie, effervescent founder of Indie Ales, did a sterling job at finding an array of beers which brought my taste buds alive. Who knew that stout and mature Comte was such a winning combination!
The event brought together an eclectic group of people, some beer aficionados while others like myself curious to try out something that little bit different.
Both Fabien & Charlie's passion and energy for their produce really brought the evening to life. It was clear they had put a lot of thought into the different beer/cheese combinations and as such we were treated to a wide variety of tastes.
I hope this is the first of many collaborations for the paring and I would highly recommend to beer and non-beer drinkers alike!
