Most people relate wine and cheese, and feel that they are a natural fit. But in fact Beer makes a better one. Most experts find it hard to pair wine and cheese, especially red wines. Cheese leaves a coating in your mouth and blunts the flavours of your wine. Beer cleans your mouth mainly because the carbonation melts it clean.
