Father's Day Inspiration

Not sure what to do for Father’s Day? We’ve got you covered. Grab a variety of beer, cheese and Kii Crisps and head out to the patio to enjoy the ultimate at-home beer & cheese tasting experience.

Beer and cheese are made with similar base ingredients that go through a related aging and fermentation process. These common characteristics allow for the perfect pairing, as beer and cheese naturally have similar flavours. The carbonation of beer is the perfect palette cleanser for the creamy and fatty texture of cheese. 

Now don’t forget the crisps! Not only are Kii crisps the perfect base for cheese, but the crunch adds the right texture and the fruit inclusions from the crisps help elevate any fruit flavours in the beer.

Here are some Kii-approved pairing ideas: 

Pairing #1:

         Cheese: Soft, spreadable cheeses like brie or camembert:

         Beer: pilsners, pale ales and porters

         Kii Naturals Crisps: Goji Berry & pistachio

Pairing #2:

         Cheese: Goat cheese, romano or feta:

         Beer: brown ales, stouts and porters

         Kii Naturals Crisps: Cranberry & pumpkin seed

Pairing #3:

         Cheese: Semi-hard, sliceable cheese like cheddar, edam or Jarlsberg

         Beer: Pilsners and extra special bitters

         Kii Naturals Crisps: Rosemary pistachio

Pairing #4:

         Cheese: Strong flavoured and crumbly cheese like St. Gorgonzola and other blue cheese

         Beer: Stronger porters, stout, heavier dark beers such as old ales and imperial stouts

         Kii Naturals Crisps: Date & Almond
