Chicago-based CHEESE and CHEERS conducts a 5X5, sit-down cheese and beer pairing, complete with some schoolin’ on pairing craft beer and artisan cheeses. The tasting will feature five outstanding American artisan cheeses making friends with an equal number of beers from Firestone Walker Brewing Co. and Chicago’s own high-gravity specialist Ten Ninety Brewing. You will learn why some pairings are just out of this world, and see for yourself how easy it is to get cheese and beer to play nice together. If the group is game, there may be a punk rock trivia question involved as well. Seating is very limited.
