Beer & Cheese Pairing

Want to up your dinner party game? Make it interactive with a beer and cheese pairing!

We got together with our friends at Antonelli’s Cheese Shop to select these perfect pairings!

Tripel B with Blue Earth Brie – the bright buttery notes of the cheese balance superbly with the spicy and fruity notes of the Tripel B.

Naked Nun with Brabander – the rich and nutty notes of the Brabander really make the citrus notes of the Naked Nun pop.

Dancin’ Monks with Oma – the pungent and sweet flavors of the Oma balance elegantly with the caramel notes in Dancin’ Monks.

Black Rhino with Fourme d’Ambert – the tangy and savory notes from the Ambert really highlight the chocolate notes in Black Rhino!

Sundowner with Kunick – this tangy and buttery triple crème cheese blends perfectly with the white grape and green apple notes of Sundowner.

In tomorrow’s Austin American-Statesman, I explore the barrel programs at local breweries and distilleries, which often rely on each other to continue their wood-aged projects by swapping barrels — hot commodities that can sometimes be hard to find. (The story is already online here.)

Sadly, I didn’t have room to include all of the barrel-aged brews that have resulted from area brewers’ efforts, but consider this list your starter guide to ones that you can find around town right now.

Adelbert’s Tripel Treat: Adelbert’s Brewery founder Scott Hovey likes to go beyond bourbon barrels when aging beers for the brewery’s Vintage series. Because they’re easier to procure than other barrels out there, “bourbon barrel aging has been overdone, so it’s nice to offer something unique to consumers,” he said.

That “unique” beer comes in the form of Tripel Treat, Adelbert’s Tripel B aged in Treaty Oak’s Barrel Reserve rum barrels. It clocks in at a boozy 11.7 percent ABV, which you’ll taste in Tripel Treat’s “exquisite balance of warming rum notes, soft coconut and smooth oak, with a surprisingly fruity nose,” according to the brewery. It’s a good way to learn how barrels influence the beers within them; as Hovey noted, “the rum barrels really made the vanilla notes pop in ways that other barrels don’t.”

For many who brew beer, distill spirits or ferment grapes into wine, barrels can be a crucial component — one that can transform the beverage from something already good to something downright magical.

Just ask Scott Hovey, the founder and brewmaster of Adelbert’s Brewery. He wanted a thriving barrel program to be a focal point of his North Austin brewery ever since stepping foot into Chicago’s Goose Island Beer Co. years ago and admiring the walls of barrels in the tasting room. But there and at his own brewery, barrels are far more than just a striking wooden backdrop…
