Beer & Cheese: aka The Fungus & Mold Tasting

Fungus, mold, and bacteria -- we usually label these species as "germs" and blame them when we get sick. But did you know that under the right conditions, these microbes are also responsible for putting alcohol in our beer, creating sour beers, and making many of the tastiest, most complex flavors in cheese?  


Join Chris Anderson, host of Science Around Cincy and Outsider Classroom, as he leads you through a tasting of five artisanal cheeses, expertly paired with five finely crafted brews. Stephanie Webster,  biology teacher turned Cincy's most respected cheesemonger, Mary Ellen Finnegan, a biochemist at P&G and certified beer judge, Dr. Senu Apewokin, MD, microbiologist, and professor at UC, and Roxanne Westendorf, President of the Bloatarians and Homebrewer Extraordinaire will provide fun, approachable explanations for why you enjoy certain flavors and why certain beers and cheeses pair so well. You'll have a blast and gain an understanding of why beer and cheese make a much better team than cheese and wine. 


Includes 5 cheese and 5 beer tastings. Lasts approx. 60 minutes.
