Innis & Gunn and Culture Club Cheese, in Bree Street, recently teamed up for a pairing to showcase a newly released beer.
Innis & Gunn is a “small” Scottish brewery that makes a range of exceptional craft beers. Their unique selling point is that their beers are aged in oak casks, adding an extra layer of flavour to an already well-crafted beer.
Culture Club Cheese, on the other hand, is Cape Town’s first boutique artisan cheese hub and fermented foods hotspot. Being no strangers to quality, intense flavours, teaming up with Innis & Gunn was effortless.
“The event”, said Pascal Despard, liaison for the event, “was especially important as it launched our new Fired Oak Limited Edition Ale, a wooded toffee beer.”
“Attendees to the event also had the chance to lay their taste buds on Innis & Gunn Vintage Ale, which is matured in oak for 100 days, giving it a rich caramel and marmalade flavour with a butter finish.”
“As a result of our tasting session on Tuesday,” said Pascal, “Jess and Luke at Culture Club Cheese are putting Innis & Gunn Original as a recommendation for a pairing with their Renosterbos cheese.”
Pascal says Innis & Gunn White Oak will be a recommended pairing with Culture Club Cheese’s High Mountain cheese.
