Beer and Cheese Pairings

Knee Deep Citra Pale Ale label

Knee Deep Citra Pale Alelocal

Lincoln, CA
92 pts. —

This local Pale Ale is brewed with the new hop hybrid, Citra. RateBeer describes it as a “citrus bomb with intense hop flavor
and aromas.”

Knee Deep Citra Pale Ale

22 oz. bottle, $7.69


Firestone Union Jack IPA

Paso Robles, CA
98 pts. — Draft Magazine

This IPA is incredibly balanced, offering a powerful blend of citrusy, floral, and bread malt scents and flavors. Even with its 7.5% ABV, it is finishing dry and clean. Draft Magazine gives this IPA 98 points, declaring it “one of the best American IPAs in
the world.”

Firestone Union Jack IPA

22 oz. bottle, $4.99
6-pack, $11.99

Shafts Blue Cheese

Shaft’s Blue

Pair either of these great beers with this wonderfully creamy Blue, which is aged in the gold mines in Nevada County. The cool, damp environment gives the cheese a yellowish-green mold and a crisp, tangy finish. It crumbles easily and is a perfect companion
to steak.

Rubicon Irish Red 22oz bomber

Rubicon Irish Red local

Sacramento, CA
90 pts. —

We love this Sac-town Irish Red! Dark crystal malts and Irish Northdown and Centennial hops make this strong, hoppy ale one of our favorites. RateBeer gives this beer 90 points, and many compliment its complexity
and depth.

Rubicon Irish Red

22 oz. bottle, $4.69

Vintage Dubliner

Vintage Dubliner

While it’s not actually a Cheddar, this Irish classic is loved just as much. Aged a minimum of 2 years, it has an intense bite with a sweet, nutty finish. We love this paired with the Rubicon Irish Red.

North Coast Brewing Co. Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

North Coast Old Rasputin

Fort Bragg, CA
95 pts. —

A great dessert beer. North Coast’s Imperial is thick and as black as Rasputin’s soul, yet smooth and slightly sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. With a 9% ABV, it packs
a punch!

North Coast
Old Rasputin

4 pk., $8.99

Wisconsin Cheddar

4½-Year Cheddar

Pair this super sharp Cheddar from Wisconsin with Old Rasputin. This Cheddar is aged a minimum of 4½ years, resulting in a full and creamy cheese with just the right amount of bite without bitterness.

4½-Year Cheddar


Auburn Aalehouse Gold Digger IPA label

Auburn Alehouse Gold Digger IPA local

Auburn, CA
90 pts. —

Dig no further; we’re proud to now carry this nugget in all our markets. Auburn Alehouses’ IPA is balanced, with slightly sweet aromas that start floral and finish with hints of grapefruit. We most enjoyed its dry, bitter finish.

Auburn Alehouse Gold Digger IPA

22 oz. bottle, $4.49

Old Amsterdam

Old Amsterdam

This classic aged Gouda has a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth taste. It’s buttery and sweet, finishing with hints of walnut and caramel. We paired this Old Amsterdam with Gold Digger, and our taste buds thanked us!
