Cheese and beer pairing

Bringing to you a beer and cheese pairing made in hop heaven! It’s all about the aromatic hops in the Bridge Road Beechworth Pale Ale brought to life best with our ever so creamy and slightly nutty Milawa Camembert. We recommend keeping it simple as this epic combo speaks for itself!

Our Camembert

Made in the classic Normandy style, our Camembert presents a white bloomy rind with a thick buttery interior that develops strong earthy flavours as it matures. Made using milk from our mates at Whorouly, it presents a creamy butterscotch texture that is perfect for spreading onto a crispy baguette. Think milky, slightly sweet and a little bit nutty – yum!

Their Pale Ale

Inspired by classic American style pale ales, Bridge Road Brewers Beechworth Pale is crisp and refreshing. It’s bound to satisfy hop heads while also offering a nice entry point to those new to craft beer scene. Dry hopped with both U.S and N.Z hop varieties, this pale is constantly tweaked to stay fresh and seasonal. Its hoppy, fruity finish will play off the buttery creaminess of our Camembert.

Enjoy With

Simplicity is key to enjoy this quality combo. Start with a good base like artisan crackers or a crusty baguette then add your condiments and enjoy! We love cold meats and a good homemade chutney or if you’re more of a sweet tooth drizzle with honey, berry compote or dried figs.

Feel like getting a bit more adventurous? Try more carbonated fruity, spicy, tingly Bridge Road Saison. Brewed in the classic Belgian style, the citrus characters combined with grassy hop flavours cuts through our creamy Camembert perfectly.
