Charcuterie + Craft Beer

This week's dose of The Flavor Project comes from Seven Sows Bourbon & Larder in Asheville, NC! I enjoyed their Charcuterie & Pickle Board, and would love to know what craft beer Dr. Bill would pair with these unique flavors...

Here's the description: Pork terrine, chicken liver mousse, Colonel Newsom's aged ham (think proscuitto), buttermilk cheese, grapefruit chutney, mustard aioli, and pickled beans, beets, & veggies.

Ah charcuterie, my favorite! My pairing would be Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock, an amazing smoked beer from the town of Bamberg in Bavaria, Germany. The beer is amazing with anything pig, it literally smells like bacon! The natural sweetness in this German Lager will accommodate all the rich fattiness of the charcuterie and the smokiness of the beer will work well with the sharp acidity from the pickled veggies.
