Chimay Beer & Cheese @ Murray's Cheese - March 2
Murray's is proud to welcome Chimay, brewers of authentic Trappist ale. That means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery under the supervision and responsibility of the monastic community, which is involved in the entire process of making and selling the ale. In this class, we'll work our way through seasonal Chimay beer and cheese pairings, guaranteed to have you singing--nay, shouting--the praises of pairing beer and cheese.
Luc "Bobo" Van Mechlen is the face of Chimay, the celebrated Belgian Trappist beer. Belgian by birth and wide of girth, Van Mechelen is the brand ambassador for Chimay, the best known of the seven breweries worldwide that produce Trappist beers. As brand ambassador for Chimay, Van Mechelen's life is spent largely on the road and on his feet. His official title is president of the Manneken-Brussels Imports, the Austin, Texas-based U.S. importer of Chimay. His job is to promote the brand through his travels around the U.S. Van Mechelen's efforts to promote Belgian beer have resulted in his being knighted by the Chevalerie du Forquet des Brasseurs, the Belgian Brewers Union.
