Exploring Lager Yeast with Cameron’s Brewing Co. (Part 2) No Comments »

In this second Ontario Brewer Podcast feature on Cameron’s Brewing Co. and lager yeast, Mirella Amato of BeerologyTM is once again joined by brewer Kyle Smith of Cameron’s Brewing Co.

Also in the studio is Debbie Levy, representing the cheeses of Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese. Debbie explains that Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheeses are Swiss inspired but completely different from the stereotypical Emmental style of cheese. She then takes some time to introduce the three cheeses that Gunn’s Hill produces: Oxford Harvest, Five Brothers and Handeck. Kyle then leads the group through a tasting of this month’s two featured lager beers: Cameron’s Lager and Cameron’s Dark 266. Together, the trio tries all of the different beer & food combinations on the table, with each of them choosing their favourite flavour interactions.

A special thanks to our guest for this podcast: Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese.
