Belgian Beer and Gourmet Cheese Pairings

In Wisconsin, we love our beer, but we also love our cheese.
Yesterday, me and fellow blogger, Katie, from Haute Apple Pie went to the "Belgian Beer Session" at Sugar Maple. Here are the beer and cheese pairings that they gave us during the lecture and tasting. I loved how well the flavors of the beers matched and complimented each cheese. This would great for a small get together, appetizers, or maybe for when the dudes are over for football. It's hard to convince them not to order pizza or wings, but this might pass.
