A few brews, some choice cheese and these six items are all you need to host a beer-centric homage to fromage.

1. Which beer goes with the Gruyere? Write each cheese’s name on HangOver Tiles [above] then slip them over the bottles they pair with. $25 for 3, placetile.com

2. Use a plane to cut hard Swiss, Pecorino and Parmesan paper-thin shards; the Microplane Adjustable Cheese Plane lets you dial between 1/32nd and 3/16th of an inch thick. $15, microplane.com

3. Easily slather crackers in fresh ricotta with Wusthof’s serrated spreader. $30, wusthof.com

4. The holes in Rosle’s soft-cheese knife keep soft cheese like Brie from sticking to the blade, and serrations keep every slice clean. $36, rosle.com

5. A sharp, sturdy paring knife like the 4-inch version by Robert Welch does double-duty on firm cheeses and fresh fruits. $42, robertwelch.com

6. The Cheese Hacker board’s solid walnut surface is ideal for slicing and serving cheese; its groove holds a sleeve of crackers. $180, phasedesignonline.com



1. Bright, citrusy witbiers with buttery Camembert and herbed goat cheeses

2. Burly barleywines with robust blues like Stilton and Roquefort

3. Toasty schwarzbiers with nutty Gouda and sharp, salty Cheddar

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
