CBE Cheese & Beer Pairing

Kudos to 44 Stone for hosting us in their back room for our tasting last night.  It was a really nice place to have it and we were treated so well by staff. I tried to record the pairings on Untappd and others who were there can fill in the gaps. Keep in mind the point of this wasn't to have crazy beer, but to focus on styles that we experimented with different cheese pairings throughout the night.We only did one pairing at a time and discussed each one. Sometimes, different pairings worked better. This worked much better than last time. I had fun, learned things, and really appreciate Dave's help in putting this event on!
