Cheese & Beer 101

Cheese and beer: These new-found friends in fermentation are all the rage in foodie circles. Why? Because while some cheese and wine pairings can set off fireworks, many are duds. Beer is easier to pair with cheese, a more forgiving medium in which to taste the subtleties of dairy. Cheese and beer nut Chris Munsey will lead you in an introduction to the lovely couple.

Afterwork Cheesemaking: Mozzarella

Mozzarella on nearly every aspiring home-cheesemaker’s to-do list. Yet, it’s not easy to get it right. Why won’t your curds form a ball? When you do get the ball to form, why is it hard enough for a game of hacky-sack? These are the mysteries of mozzarella. In this class, your instructor, who is also a cheesemaker, will not only demystify the mozz, but also get you on the road to making perfect ovalini and bocconcini just in time for all that wonderful summer produce. But wait! There’s more! We’ll use our curds to make everyone’s favorite cheese, burrata.

California’s Unsung Cheeses and Wines

With its trophy cabernets and castle wineries, Napa draws more tourists than Bi-Rite Creamery's lines on a summer’s day. Down a winding road (or two) is Sonoma and Marin - home to the legendary creameries that put our state on the dairy map. Past the shiny surfaces of these celebrated regions, bottles, and wheels, you’ll find a California that, while less glittery, is packed with gems that make wine and cheese geeks swoon.
