ONTARIO CRAFT BEER

AND CANADIAN CHEESE

ARE A PERFECT MATCH!

Here are some tips on how to enjoy them together:

Simple Pairings:

Delicate Beers ® young, fresh cheese:

Delicate beers provide a great match for fresh cheeses, like Mozzarella and Ricotta.

The understated, fresh flavours of these beers will help highlight subtle aromas and

flavours in the cheese, while carbonation provides a lovely contrast in texture.

Malty Beers ® nutty/aged cheese:

Malty beers fare well with younger semi-firm cheeses, like Swiss and young Gouda.

The earthy toasted notes in these beers will tie in nicely with the nutty aromas and

flavours of the cheese, resulting in a seamless mellow flavour combination.

Highly Hopped/Bitter beer ® tart/sharp cheese:

Hoppy beers are a classic pairing for sharper, tart cheeses like medium Cheddars.

Another fun pairing for Hoppy beers is herbed cheese. Because hops too are herbs,

the herbal notes in these cheeses will parallel the hop aroma and flavour in the beer.

Strong Beer ® Strong Beer strong cheese (Eg. Blue Cheese):

Strong beers pair well with bold-flavoured cheeses, like Blue cheese and aged

Cheddars. The alcohol note in these beers will meld with the sharper notes in the

cheese, allowing some of the underlying sweet or buttery notes to shine through.

Rich Malty Ales ® older/hard cheese (especially those with

pronounced nutty and/or complex flavours):

Rich Malty Ales are a great pairing for sweeter cheeses, like aged Gouda and

maple flavoured cheese. This decadent combination will bring out sweeter caramel

tones in both the beer and the cheese and can be a tasty after-dinner treat.

The possibilities are endless. Have some fun, experiment, and find your own

cheese and beer combinations.


BEER-BASTED CHICKEN WITH

CANADIAN AGED CHEDDAR CHEESE

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts

1

/2 cup (125 mL) Ontario Craft Beer (ie: light lager, pilsner or ale)

1

/4 cup (60 mL) unsweetened apple juice

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh rosemary or

1 tsp (5 mL) dried rosemary

Salt

Freshly ground pepper

4 oz (120 g) Canadian Aged Cheddar, thinly sliced

Preparation:

Cut the chicken breasts in half to make them less thick.

Place chicken in a bowl and add beer, apple juice, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper

to taste. Marinate at least 30 minutes or several hours if time allows.

Preheat grill to medium.

Remove chicken from marinade and drain, then cook on grill with lid closed 5-7

minutes each side, depending on thickness of chicken.

Re-form chicken breasts by pairing up both halves after placing a quarter of the

cheese between the halves. Close grill lid and allow cheese to melt for 2-3 minutes

before removing from grill.

Serve with vegetables cooked en papillote or with a salad.

Tips:

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Medium Cheddar, Aged Provolone.
