On Friday, October 14, people can learn the art of pairing beer and cheese in the best way possible – by tasting some of the best of both. HB Hanratty’s Pub and the Cheese Chick are hosting South by Northwest to celebrate American Cheese Month. Guests will get hearty samples of Oregon cheeses paired with Arizona beers for $20.
When the Cheese Chick reminded the esteemed Mr. HB Hanratty that October was American Cheese Month, an event to celebrate was inevitable. The gentleman is known for being a bit on the cheesy side himself, but that aside, his long-standing bar at 7th Street and Camelback is better known as a place to sample some of the fine Arizona craft beers being brewed in the state.
At the event, guests will get to sample four Oregon cheeses new to the Arizona market from Oregon Farmstead & Artisan Cheeses, Rivers Edge Chevre, Rogue Creamery, Tumalo Farms and Willamette Valley Cheese. They will be paired with beers from San Tan Brewery, Sonoran Brewery and Sleepy Dog.
The $20 ticket includes generous portions of cheese paired with gourmet crackers and cheese-friendly condiments, 4 tasters of beer and a pint of your favorite.
To RSVP, visit HB Hanratty on Facebook and respond to the event posting . One ticket per person will be held with each RSVP until 7pm. After 7pm, those tickets will be made available for walk ins. All payment made at the door.
