Casually Tasting Beer and Food

The tangy bread and mild funkiness of the cheese complimented the horsey/barnyardy yeast character. The fresh spritz of lemon zest accentuated the beer’s refreshing effervescence. I had tried this beer beforehand so I knew it would be perfect.

Things I Learned by Pouring Beer at an Event
