Birds of a Feather: Barley Wines and Blue Cheeses – Sold out
BRA-Istituto Alberghiero Velso Mucci
Barley wines, high-alcohol beers traditionally produced in the UK, are now catching on elsewhere, especially in Italy. Ideal for aging, they go very well with blue cheeses in particular. Here we’ll put the “marriage” to the test with a tasting of the historic Thomas Hardy’s Ale, matured in barrels used for cognac, and new takes on the style from major Italian breweries such as Birrificio Sant’Andrea in Vercelli, Troll in Vernante, Carrobiolo in Monza and Baladin in Piozzo.
