We will be putting the wits of our beer genius Mathew and our wine guru David, against your palettes! You will be able to sample beers and wines! After sampling you can fill out your ballot and determine once and for all whether beer and cheese has the upper hand, or if the crown goes to the cheese and wine pairings.
