Beer & Cheddar Pairings with Long Trail Beer & Cabot Cheddar.
Long Trail Ale & Extra Sharp Cheddar
Two of Vermont classics go great together! Cabot's Extra Sharp Cheddar pairs nicely with Long Trail's Ale. The full bodied amber ale has a clean, full flavor and pairs nicely with the smooth, creamy naturally aged cheddar.
Long Trail Blackbeary Wheat & Sharp Light Cheddar
This light and refreshing beer with a hint of blackberry flavor pairs nicely with Cabot's Sharp Light Cheddar. The crisp, fruity notes of the beer combine well with the nutty, earthy flavor this cheddar offers.
Long Trail IPA & Vermont Sharp
The assertive hoppy bite of IPA stands up in defiant contrast to the creamy smooth flavor of Cabot's Vermont Sharp Cheddar. This IPA also pairs well with Cabot's Monterey Jack.
Long Trail Belgian White & Hot Habanero Cheddar
The heat of the peppers and richness of this cheddar are tempered with the soft notes of citrus and clean finish of this all natural seasonal offering.
