Beer and Cheese

Here we focus on a classic beer tasting. The world of cheese is just as extensive as that of beer. There is an almost endless range of styles, flavors and varieties to choose from. All sorts of possible combinations are possible.

Which beer goes well with which cheese? Which varieties are best suited for harmonious interaction? What do you have to consider when making a selection? What should you know about the production of beer and cheese?

There is a choice of classics from Bavaria as well as lesser known ones from other beer and cheese countries. Cheese is mild to tart, soft to hard, cow, sheep or goat – beer is malty-sweet, roasted or bitter, top- or bottom-fermented, from light beer to barley wine – the range of possibilities is enormous.

Choose a topic in advance and let us surprise you. Your taste buds will be spoiled in any case.

Beer and Chocolate

For those who love unusual delights to the palate, we offer the special combination of beer and chocolate. Immerse yourself in a totally new taste experience. Enjoy the best combination of premium beers from all over the world with finest Grand Cru chocolates, selected by a qualified beer sommelier. Extraordinary delights are guaranteed. You will just melt away.

Beer and chocolate – I beg your pardon? The unusual thing about this combination is its obscurity. In fact, nothing could be more obvious. Many beers as such already tempt the nose and palate with a fine chocolate aroma. Some beers even bear chocolate in their names. Beer tastes can be extremely complex. And even more taste nuances can be created in combination with chocolate, often totally unexpectedly. We want to show you that chocolate proves to be an ideal complement not only for these classics. The best of both worlds opens up the way for totally new creations.

Why do some beers taste of cocoa? What sorts of beer are best served with what kinds of chocolate? Where do the many flavors in beer come from? What is to be known about the production of chocolate, hops and malt? With this unusual taste experience we will reveal these and other (bitter) sweet secrets.
