Steve Jones of Cheese Bar, in collaboration with Adam Berger of 10-01 Restaurant in Portland are planning a cheese event to, perhaps, end all cheese events. Coming this Monday June 21st from 6-9pm, 101 Cheeses promises a memorable cheese and drink pairing experience. You'll get wine, cocktails, beer (attendees get two drink tickets and additional drinks can be purchased) and access to a spread of cheeses - 101 to be exact - the likes of which hasn't been seen in these parts since the American Cheese Society held its convention in Portland all the way back in 2006. Billed as 'the most comprehensive tasting of craft cheese ever held in Portland,' the event promises the opportunity to play with all sorts of cheese + beverage pairings as well as to try cheeses that you may never have had the chance, the will or the stamina to experience.
101 Cheeses will take place at 10-01 in Portland's Pearl District. Tickets (available online here from Brown Paper Tickets) are $39 in advance or $49 at the door, if still available. And for $59, you can be a VIP at the event from 5-6pm, with full access to all of the cheese plus champagne and sparkling wine tastings.
