Wine goes with cheese like Hepburn goes with Bogart: They’re great on their own, but together they’re a classic. What many people don’t realize is that a spectacular beer, like a classic Irish stout, can just as easily enhance the flavor of a spectacular all-natural Irish cheese. And vice versa. Kerrygold Irish Cheeses were made to be enjoyed with other foods and drinks, and they happen to pair particularly well with certain wines and beer partners.
So put the pink wine down and step slowly away from the light beer. We’ll get you through this. We’re here to help.
