The Grand Rapids Public Museum is partnering with Brewery Vivant and The Cheese Lady for a special Beer Explorers on May 11. Participants can expect to learn about pairing beers with a variety of cheeses, as well as explore their own palate to choose what combination they like best.

Wine is typically assumed the ideal pairing with cheese, but beer is actually the traditional beverage to pair with cheese. Both traditional farmhouse products, beers pair well with a variety of cheese and can enhance the flavors on your palate.

This upcoming Beer Explorers class will give 40 participants the opportunity to learn about their sense of taste and what combinations appeal to them individually. The class will be led by Brewery Vivant's Wandering Monk and Certified Cicerone, Ryan Engemann, and Grand Rapid’s The Cheese Lady, Heather Zinn.  

Doors will open at 6 p.m. with class beginning at 6:30 p.m. and will be held on the first floor of the Museum. Admission to class includes three beer samples and cheese samples, as well as access to the Museum’s first two floors to explore! A cash bar will be available.

Tickets for the event are $8 for members and $18 for non-members. Participants must be 21 and older. Tickets can be purchased at grpm.org/Calendar
