For the pairings pursuer

In Cheese & Beer, veteran cookbook author and San Francisco Chronicle cheese columnist Janet Fletcher taps two delightful trends—the surge in craft beer and the steady swell of great artisanal cheese—and unites them. You’ll learn fundamentals of pairing but also get an overview of major beer styles and a primer on storing and serving both beer and cheese.

Gift to go with: A pairing from the book, naturally; one of our favorites: Alaskan Amber Ale and Beecher’s Flagship Reserve
