Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.
English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
Pair with: : Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.
Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson or Hudson Red to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.
American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.
Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleumont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.
