May 24 @ 5:00 pm 7:30 pm

May is American Cheese Month! We’re celebrating with a beer & cheese pairing with our new H Street neighbor, Paste & Rind Cheese Company.

We’ll feature 4 different pairings (described below).

We will host the Cheese & Beer Pairing event on Wednesday, May 24 from 5:00-7:30, with sessions starting every 20 minutes. Spots are limited, so please purchase your tickets in advance for the session time you want.

This event is at Craft Beer Cellar DC – 301 H Street NE.


Tickets are $15, but if you buy any beverage that night, we’ll give you $5 off. We’ll also have cheese for sale from Paste & Rind.

Westbrook Gose with Prairie Fruits Farms Goat+Cow Feta in Whey Brine (IL)

Gose is brewed with a touch of coriander and plenty of grey sea salt, bringing some serious brine and tang to the table. PFF’s Feta matches that tang and salt, while adding a creamy reprieve on the back end, making you reach for more of both again and again.

RAR Nanticoke IPA with Bobolink Dairy Cave Aged Cheddar (NJ)

Nanticoke IPA has all that you want in an IPA, and nothing that you don’t with grainy, biscuity, caramelish notes and a floral finish. We see similar toasted flavors coming forth from the cave-aging process of the cheese, and that extra age gives us crunchy cheese crystals while maintaining the grassy, floral base of a classic cheddar.

Weihenstephaner Korbinian Dopplebock with Jake’s Aged Gouda (NY)

The Korninian Dopplebock wins people over with notes of plums and figs, balancing the dark malt aromas reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Jake’s Aged Gouda is the same way, balancing some fruity sweetness typical of a gouda style cheese with deeper hazelnut, toffee and chocolate vibes. Pretty close to a perfect pair.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen with Jasper Hill Harbison (VT)

The Schlenkerla Märzen presents a truly smoked flavor that will blow your mind. Big notes of smoked beechwood, a bit of toasted malt, some salty bacon hints, notes of fresh cut hay and earthy noble hop spice on the backend make this an all around show stopper. We’ve paired this with another show stopper in the Harbison, which boasts meaty, bacony, malty flavors in it’s own right, but the spruce wrapping adds a woodsy, vegetal hit that brings everything together.
