Three Beers, Three Cheeses
Three beautiful beers matched with cheese.
A diverse balance of three brilliant cheeses: the light and fresh Anster; tangy and strong Dale End Cheddar; and the rich Young Buck Blue. These have been carefully matched with three individual craft beers from Ilkley Brewery: their Pale Ale; Rombald amber bitter; and Hanging Stone – an oatmeal stout.

This beer and cheese gift box includes:
Anster. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Farmers for over 50 years, the Stewart family started making cheese in 2008 and soon created Anster. This milky, crumbly, fresh tasting cheese is aged for 8 weeks. Jane Stewart supplies The Courtyard Dairy with special cheese made only using a ‘starter bacteria’ specified by The Courtyard Dairy, which gives the cheese a particularly milky, fresh flavour.Matched with Ilkley Pale. 500ml 4.2%abv. A golden hoppy pale ale.
Dale End Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic, vegetarian. 250g.
Traditional clothbound Cheddar made in Yorkshire. Alastair Pearson (of Botton Creamery) selects specific batches for The Courtyard Dairy that are then further aged – up to 18-months. At this age Dale End Cheddar has a distinctive, tangy bite and rich, long-lasting flavour. It is one of Andy and Kathy’s favourites.
Matched with Rombald. 500ml 4.6% abv. A traditional Yorkshire bitter with a fruity american hop finish.
Young Buck Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Outstanding raw-milk, blue cheese from Northern Ireland. An interesting take on a Stilton recipe, Young Buck cheese is traditionally-made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese.
