Spring Beers to Pair with Le Bocké Cheese

There’s a new cheese in town and we are not worthy. Le Bocké (bo-kay) is a semi-firm cheese with a gloriously creamy paste inside a toothsome amber rind that is, wait for it, hand washed in beer! When we found out, we just had to head down to 5 Vines Wine, Craft Beer & Spirits to find out what goes well with a beer-washed cheese. Together we found two springtime beers that bring out different sides to this amazing cheese.

Le Bocke Paulaner Salvator Double Bock (Doppelbock)

This strong dark beer has been brewed by Paulaner monks in Bavaria for over 375 years. They originally brewed it as a nutritional substitute for themselves during Lent, and now the beer is celebrated each spring as the first barrel is opened at the Nockherberg beer festival. The bittersweet flavour of the beer brings out the mildly savoury side of Le Bocké, while the cheese tames down the hops in the beer.   

Brasserie Dunham Saison Fleurs Sauvages

This saison is brewed with local honey and wildflowers, just 120 kilometres away from La Fromagerie Champetre in Quebec where Le Bocké is made. Because neither flavour is aggressive, the balance on this pairing is addictively delicious. The beer becomes light, sweet and floral and the cheese becomes creamy, rich and nutty. Try Le Bocké with either of these beers, or visit our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram page and tell us what your favourite pairing is!
