1. Lager + Wisconsin Baby Swiss

Lagers are fragrantly hoppy, with sweet, grassy notes and a golden hue. They have a crisp taste that pairs excellently with a semi-soft, buttery Wisconsin Baby Swiss. Baby Swiss is made with whole milk, and is a bit richer than traditional Swiss. It’s creamy with a slightly sweet flavor.

2. Porter + Wisconsin Smoked Gouda

A porter is a dark brew made with specially roasted dark malts and top-fermenting yeast. Porters generally are medium bodied, highly hopped and have a thick, creamy head. With notes of chocolate and coffee, a pint of porter pairs best with a bold cheese like Wisconsin Smoked Gouda. Pick out an aged wedge to guarantee a firmer texture and full-bodied taste.

3. Bock + Wisconsin Brick

Classified as “spring beers,” bocks have a long history of being brewed by Bavarian monks during Lent. Bocks usually have a deep amber color and a thin head, with a grainy aroma and taste and a hint of caramel. Bocks match up deliciously with German-influenced Wisconsin Brick Cheese. Brick has a full, earthy flavor that has just a touch of nuttiness when young but turns pungent and tangy when aged.
