FigMint ‘BC Day’ Beer & Cheese Tasting

with 2 comments

Wine and cheese is such a cliché that many people scoff or are skeptical that beer and cheese go together. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Beer-pairing author and Brooklyn Brewing brewmaster, Garrett Oliver, is impassioned in his advocacy of the superiority of beer when it comes to pairing with cheese. Janet Fletcher of the San Francisco Chronicle also wrote a good article on the topic.

Curious now? Then, I recommend taking in FigMint’s next ‘On the Wood’ tasting series, featuring a ‘BC Day’ beer & cheese pairing theme. Executive Chef, Lee Humphries, will present four BC artisan cheeses supplied by Mount Pleasant Cheese (3432 Cambie Street, Vancouver) and organic ales from Sorrento’s organic farm brewery, Crannóg:

Tickets are $25 with seating limited to sixteen. Call today to reserve a spot:
