Over 500 folk filled a banquet room at the Marriott Inner Harbor in Baltimore to overflowing last evening to taste Cabot Cheeses paired with Clipper City beers ... no wine!
National reps from Cabot as well as farmers from the Cabot Cooperative attended to make presentations and meet and greet. Clipper City Brewing's Hugh Sisson and I were there to represent the beer. Cabot created a glossy pamphlet describing the pairings and offering beer and cheese recipes.
Last night was a rare occasion on which I could actually introduce Hugh Sisson as the Big Cheese. I offer my apologies to Beverly Baker, Sandy Levesque, and all the other Cabot Cheese reps, whom I'm certain have heard that stale comment (not the cheese) more times than they care to remember!
