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, and Dr. Senu Apewokin, MD, microbiologist, and professor at UC 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.

Missing Ingredient Homebrew Competition Winners Announced

Missing Linck is all about spreading Cincinnati's fabulously funky heritage Missing Linck Yeast around the beer drinking and brewing communities like.....well, a fungus -- but the good kind.

In the spirit of the event, Urban Artifact has generously distributed the yeast to every regional homebrewer that has asked for it, and they've been working on their variations of Missing Linck for the past weeks or months. In one sense, homebrewers have an advantage over commercial brewers. They have a lot more leeway to get creative with very small batches; and the rules for homebrewers are the same as the rules for commercial brewers -- use the yeast and do whatever you want with it.

On June 2nd a combined panel of certified beer judges and just some great people that we enjoy drinking with will judge the entries, and the beers that we choose as the best of the batches will be announced at Urban Artifact at 12:30PM, June 3rd.
