Presented by: 16 Tons, Galaxy Wine Company, & Block 15 Brewery & Restaurant
On Saturday December 8th, 16 Tons Cafe at 29th & Willamette will host CHEESE WARS IV.
Cheese Wars is a food-pairing showdown between two ancient beverages. We will feature 5 courses of carefully selected cheese. Each cheese course will be paired with a beer and a wine. Block 15 Brewmaster Nick Arzner will choose and present the beers. Champagne enthusiast Karly Kercheval of Galaxy Wine will present the wines, with emphasis on Grower’s Champagne! Cheese Wars past participants have included Ninkasi, Oakshire, King Estate, Brooks Winery, Upright Brewing, The Commons Brewery, and other notable producers. Award winning artisan cheeses have been sourced from Oregon, Washington, France, England, and Italy.
Which pairings work best only you can decide. Cheese Wars is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the processes of making beer, wine, and cheese. This is a fun and lively sit down affair! Tickets are limited. $25 includes all tasting and food (cheese and bread). Purchase tickets at either 16 Tons location or online at BrownPaperTickets.com http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/297845.
