Beer vs. Wine “Cheese Wars”
35 people come to taste beer and wine paired with cheese. A beer and a wine sommelier face off, which goes better? “Cheese Wars” is a scene from The American Brew (DVD extras) featuring Garrett Oliver, author and brew master from Brooklyn Brewery and Geri Banks, wine consultant. They’re given 7 of the world’s most flavorful cheeses and must pair each with a delicious beer and wine. The audience smells, tastes, swirls, and votes. And the winner is…?
