Beer and Cheese Benefit

Some of you may remember that last year we treated ourselves to a private beer and cheese pairing at Goose the Market and shared our experience with you. Or maybe we were bragging, it probably depends on your perspective. Our first thought after this event was "how do we share the same experience with our readers" and we slowly began working on a timeline for a similar event that would be open to the public. Then tragedy struck Gabe Jordan and his family. We weren't sure what the future of this event would be as Gabe began his long road to recovery. After we heard about another tragic event that befell Kelly Funk of Seldom Seen Farms, we decided that our next event with Goose the Market needed to be a benefit. And here we are.

Beer & Cheese - a benefit for Gabe Jordan and Kelly Funk

On September 20, Goose the Market will host a beer and cheese pairing for the first 25 people to RSVP to knights@hoosierbeergeek.com (the Enoteca can't hold any more!). The event will feature 6 beer and cheese pairings (similar to our last beer and cheese pairing with Goose the Market) for a fixed price of $30. Additional donations towards Gabe Jordan and Kelly Funk will also be accepted.

An email RSVP will be required to attend this event, and we will respond to your email to let you know if you are one of the first 25 and let you know what time to show up that evening. In your email, please specify the number of people you would like to RSVP for and their names. We'll do our best to make sure you're seated together.


  1. I think this is an absolutely AWESOME event! I've long loved the pairing of cheese and beer and I'm so happy to see it become more and more normal, and more and more accepted. Too many still think that beer doesn't pair well with food, and that food pairings should just be left to wine.

    I also find chocolate (at least for me personally) to be a perfect pairing with beer. The combinations are virtually endless.


  2. What time is the event estimated to begin?

    To comment on the above, beer pairs much better with chesse than wine.

  3. The plan is to start around 7 and the event should last about 2 hours. We tried to aim for a time that would both allow people to stop at home after work and not stay out too late on a Monday.
