Beer and Cheese Pairings in Brooklyn

Think Bud and pizza is the only way to go in pairing your favorite cold one with cheese? Every Tuesday at 7 p.m. this summer, Bierkraft in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood hosts a free beer and cheese tasting.  Just get there before 6:30 to score your free ticket!

Bierkraft Growler Filled with the House Brew

Move over Chardonnay and Merlot! Bierkraft puts a well-stocked wine cellar to shame with a tasting room and Bud-free selection of more than 600 brews, arranged geographically from Louisiana’s Abita Purple Haze to the Yuengling Lord Chesterfield.  For other countries, check out their .

Brews like Ommegang, Butternuts Porkslap Pale Ale, or Lakefront New Grist Gluten Free Lager are matched by a handful of their 250-plus artisanal cheeses including Lincolnshire Poacher, Stilton with Mango and Ginger, or the Stinking Bishop.

OK, so perhaps you’re in the mood for dessert.  Bierkraft also has an extensive selection of chocolate bars as an accompaniment to what’s on tap.  And again, these aren’t Hershey bars or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  Try a Dagoba lime or lavender bar and if you’re feeling in the mood, a New Tree Sexy Chocolate. The flavor combinations are endless!  No worries for the unalcoholically inclined. Bubbly ciders, Ginger beer, and snacks like Asiago crackers and Zapp’s potato chips are in stock.

Hours: Open 7 Days a Week
Mon-Thurs 12pm-9pm
Fri-Sat 12pm-11pm
Sun 12pm-8pm

Getting Here By Subway: Take the M or R Line to the Union Street Station. Walk 1 block down Union Street and 1/2 block up Fifth Avenue to #191
