beer and cheese

This night, we stopped into our favorite restaurant “Chef Amaury’s 33 West” in Aurora Illinois. Not for a meal, although second supper was tempting, but a cheese plate and drinks.

barely buzzed (rubbed w/espresso & lavender, cow's milk), sweet grass tomm (sheep's milk), triple cream blue (cow's milk), merlot cheese, boucheron goat cheese

Not a wine night, but stout for my nitro powered beauty,

A stout for my beauty

and for me from Avery Brewery in Colorado a Belgian ale, one of their trio called the holy trinity. I drank heartily of salvation.

    She’s cute! And kudos to her for going with a dark brew. I prefer the pale ones if I’m going to drink beer, yeungling or blue moon. Pairing it with cheese is an idea I’ll have to try sometime. Brie with a stout?

  12. I love cheese! I drink more wine in the winter, but the coldest of beers on a hot summer day… love that!
