I just wanted to know what I should have with my damn mac and cheese. So I went for the cheese pairing. (Now, I apologize because the reference material I went with was just stuff I found on google and saved to my phone. Looking through the images I can't actually figure out how to find what website they came from... so I kinda fucked that up. Damn you, technology) According to the one particular guide I found, the name of which is now lost in the ether, brown ale goes with cheddar cheese. With that, I went and got me some Nut Brown Ale brewed by Garrison right here in Halifax.

Anywho, it's kind of bitter and fairly mild and while it gave my mac and cheese a slight smokey hint, it wasn't really strong enough flavourwise to have much effect on my appreciation of the meal. That being said, I think next time if I were to change anything for this particular combination I would use stronger cheese. The "old cheddar cheese" I got from the sobey's left a whole lot to be desired. Next time I make some mac and cheese, no matter what the hell I'm drinking with it, I'm making it with real cheese.
