Cheese and Beer Tuesday 28th March 6.30-8.30 Adelaide Central Market $50.00 each

Cheese and beer: These friends in fermentation are all the rage in foodie circles. Why? Because while some cheese and wine pairings can set off fireworks, many don't. Beer is easier to pair with cheese, a more forgiving medium in which to taste the subtleties of dairy. Our resident cheese expert Valerie Henbest with Lisa Liebelt from Prancing Pony Brewery will lead you in an introduction to this lovely couple.
