It's Not You It's Brie! American Cheese & Beer
18 Reasons
It's Not You It's Brie! American Cheese & Beer
Tuesday, November 27, 7-9PM, Ticketed
$60 for 18 Reasons members; $70 for the general public


Cheese author and educator Kirstin Jackson joins 18 Reasons for a night of fermented glory. After visiting creameries and interviewing more than 48 cheesemakers for her recently published book "It's Not You, It's Brie: Unwrapping America's Unique Culture of Cheese," she's ready to tell the stories of some of her favorite domestic cheeses, while holding a pint glass. The selected artisan cheeses will be explored in unison with American beers, most local. We will taste through 6 cheeses and 6 beers!


Books will be for sale and Kirstin will have a pen handy for signing after cheese consumption.

About the book:
In It's Not You, It's Brie, cheese expert Kirstin Jackson tells the whole cheese story. Through fifty American cheese profiles, she takes us "backstage" into underground caves, into funky scents and traditions that link today's cheese makers to American history. You'll meet the people who dedicate their lives to artisan cheesefrom those who run generations-old family farms to others who ditched their day job to start a dairy.

Jackson groups the cheeses into sixteen styles ranging from American Originals to Mixed Milk, explaining how each one's unique flavors, appearance, and production practices have come to define its style. Featured cheeses include Queso Oaxaqueño, a Mexican-style cheese hand-stretched in California; Scholten Weybridge, a double-crème made in Vermont from the milk of a rare Dutch Belted cow; and River's Edge Mayor of Nye Beach, a funky washed-rind goat's milk that knocks its French rivals out of the water.

Beer, wine, and food pairing suggestions round out each profile, along with recipes that use every cheese style in refreshing new ways, from Gouda Almond Toffee to Landaff and Celery Root Beer Soup.
