The brewer of Helton Brewing Company is a certified Cicerone and has spent many years developing menus for brewer’s dinners and has an extensive knowledge of how beer and food pair together. People have different thresholds to different tastes from saltiness to butteriness to bitterness which impacts the beer and cheese pairing. Some beers offer layers of flavor and nuances that defy the notion of what most people have in mind as beer. The level of hoppiness, fermentation flavors, alcohol, body, and aging of the beer lead to multi-dimensional taste. The hops in beer parallels the acidity in wine and the carbonation offers a textural component to the tasting and helps cut the fat from the palate. Cheesemakers and brewers both come out of the background of centuries in fermentation science. Both rely on the principles of preserving food for later enjoyment. The charcuterie and condiments allow the guest to play with flavors and see how sweetness, spiciness, and saltiness changes the flavors of the beer. The Helton Brewing Company will educate our guests on how their palate reacts to our pairings and bring extra excitement in a unique dining experience.
