Beer with goat's cheeseUnusual pairings to try this Spring
With warmer days, longer evenings and fantastic fresh produce, Spring is the ultimate season for good food! This week we’re talking about goat’s cheese. It’s perfect for the season and is delicious when paired with the right matching beers, so scroll down for some seasonal meal ideas.
Why goat’s cheese?
Goat’s cheese is intense, powerful and creamy. It fits well with a lot of different kinds of beer, like saison, tripel or blond, but also with a porter, geuze or Brettanomyces beer (Orval or Rebel Strop, for instance).
One of the best things about goat’s cheese is that it’s made from goat's milk, which contains less lactose than cow's milk. This means it’s easier to digest than cow cheese, and people with a lactose intolerance can often enjoy it, too. Goat’s cheese ripens very quickly; after a month it tastes like an old cheese made from cow's milk. It’s lower in fat, but certainly more intense in its taste. And, last but not least, goat’s cheese contains copper, which together with iron helps the immune system.
