Two Cities, Two Cheese and Beer Events

‘Tis the season, apparently, for beer and cheese festivities. In one day, I’ve received notice of two events in two of my favorite cities, both featuring a panoply of curds and suds.

For the New Yorkers among you, and for those who are good last minute planners, my favorite NYC indie cheese shop, Saxelby Cheesemongers, will be co-hosting a night of Chocolate, Cheese and Beer this Wednesday, August 29, from 7-9 PM at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. The tasting will feature seasonal, American farmstead cheeses paired with Jimmy’s selection of craft beers and a slew of chocolate goodies. Reservations are required and can be made by via e-mail to or by calling Saxelby Cheesemongers at (212) 228-8204.

From New York straight to Philly, Garrett Oliver, brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewing Company, will be teaming up with the crew at DiBruno Brothers’ new Chestnut Street location on Thursday, September 13, from 6-8 PM. Garrett is one of the brewing community’s great champions of beer and cheese pairing. He also happens to make some pretty outstanding brews, six of which will be matched with some of DiBruno’s carefully selected, international fromages. Call DiBruno’s at (215) 665-9220 x237 to make a reservation.
