Taking Beer "Uptown"..

Apparently it's possible to be snobbish about beer! Beer, to me, is a bottle of Pacifico or a can of Miller Genuine Draft. How little I knew... mea culpa...

The editors of "Relish," a Wednesday section in the Daily Breeze, tell us that it's important to pair the right beer with specific cheeses. Here are their suggestions:

Cheese Beer
Emmentale (Swiss) Bock beer, such as Shiner Bock
Cheddar Nut brown ale, such as Newcastle
Brie Crisp, floral pilsner, such as Pilsner Urquell
Kaseri or sheeps' milk Highly-carbonated wheat beer, such as Blue Moon
Parmesan Smooth porter, such as Michelob Porter
Mozzarella India pale ale, such as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Roquefort Yeasty, Trappist ale, such as Chimay Bleue
American Medium-hop pilsner, such as Stella d'Artois

And then comes -- brace yourself!
CHEEZ WHIZ Amber lager, such as Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
