Ninkasi Brewing vs. Brooks Winery at 16 Tons
A Benefit for Greenhill Humane Society
Craft beer or wine—which pairs best with cheese? On Thurs., Jan. 5, 2012, 16 Tons hosts the third bout pitting a brewery against a winery, Cheese Wars III!
Held at The Supreme Bean at 29th & Willamette, Cheese Wars is a food-pairing showdown between two ancient beverages. The battleground? 5 courses, of rustic, gourmet cheese, many coming from local sources. Each cheese course will be paired with a beer and a wine. Eugene’s own Ninkasi founder and Brewmaster Jamie Floyd will choose and present the beers. Winemaker Chris Williams of Brooks Winery, in Amity, Oregon, will choose and present the wines.
Which pairings work best? Only you can decide.
Cheese Wars is a fantastic opportunity to learn about making and pairing beer, wine, and cheese. Tickets are limited for this fun, lively, sit-down affair. $25 includes all tasting and food (cheese and bread). Purchase tickets at 16 Tons, The Supreme Bean or online at BrownPaperTickets.com. There is a 5:30 p.m. session and an 8 p.m. session, each lasting approximately 2 hours.
