WHAT: Kannah Creek’s Beer & Cheese Pairing

WHEN: Tuesday, Dec. 17

WHERE: Kannah Creek Brewing Company, 1960 N. 12th St., Grand Junction

COST: $20 per person


Kannah Creek Brewing Company’s newest event — its first-ever beer and cheese pairing — is set for Tuesday, Dec. 17, at 5:30 p.m. Thirty spots are available at $20 a head, with a complimentary pint of beer at the start of the gathering.

“We love cheese, and obviously we love beer,” Kannah Creek Spokeswoman Katlin Lubeley said. “Why not pair the two together? Beer with cheese can bring out unique flavors.”

Lubeley suggests that attendees arrive right at 5:30 p.m. for a pint, then the pairing will kick off around 6 p.m.

According to Kannah Creek Brewer Emma Dutch, five “regional craft cheeses” and seven Kannah beers will be sampled throughout the tasting. The cheese will be provided by Crossroads Fine Foods. Two cheeses will be paired with two different beers, to showcase how cheese and beer flavors change when partnered together.

“The creameries we decided to use for this event offer a combined total of more than 30 different styles of cheese, and our brewers tried just about all of them,” Lubeley said. “They wanted to find specific flavor profiles that would pair perfectly with each carefully selected, featured beer for this event.”

Tuesday’s beer and cheese pairing is the first of three; other events are planned for Jan. 21 and Feb. 18. The private tasting will occur in the back room of Kannah Creek at 1960 N. 12th St., Grand Junction.
