Short Pour: Cheesecake and Beer

Beer Geeks host Michael Ferguson insists that beer goes far better with most foods than wine does. 

And that includes desserts, like cheesecake. Many dark beers, sour beers, and fruited beers perfectly counter-balance and complement the creamy sweetness of cheesecake.

And at Hair of the Dog Brewing Company in Portland, legendary brewer Alan Sprints pushes the envelope even more - he makes cheesecake with beer as part of the recipe. In this Short Pour, Alan shares it with Michael and the visiting owners of Seattleā€™s Bottle Shop craft beer store, Matt VandenBerghe and Matt Bonney (for whom Alan named his legendary Matt Beer).
