“We’re very lucky to be visited by Brock Bennett Sake Brewer at Europe’s first Sake Brewery, also a famous Norwegian beer brewery located in Grimstad. This night he’ll lecture us in the wondrous drink called Sake and we’ll have a cheese pairing where we match beers and sake with cheese.
On the cheese side of this we’ll have Al Greenall from Ostehuset with us, who will take us on a journey in flavor, with no less than six different cheeses in different styles.
In addition to Brock we also have Sake Sommeliers Lani Cantor Vatland & Mabel Moya from Norwegian Sake Association with us. And representing beer ØST main man Helge Andre Hafstad will lead us through a few gems.
Price will be 495.- pr. person and seats should be pre-booked at email@example.com”
Nøgne Ø: Europe’s first sake brewery
We have a special sake tasting coming up at Øst, the local craft beer bar in Stavanger Øst. A taste of Norwegian sake from Nøgne Ø. We are proud to have the first sake brewery in Europe right here in Norway. We will be trying three very different sake, including a special new kijoshu (sweet and aged), and three remarkable beers. All paired with cheese from the local cheese stop, Ostehuset.
Sake and cheese?
Sake and cheese is something we are becoming a bit obsessed with here at the Norwegian Sake Association. We love that sake is easier on the stomach and body than wine. Compared to wine, sake has less sugar, less acid, and no tannins, which some people are allergic to. Sake is also high in lactic acid, which is used in brewing and cheese making. Some sake have a creamy mouth feel that pairs wonderfully with cheese. Sake can enhance cheeses, and vise versa, instead of cutting through the taste with strong acidic flavors.
