Glorious Craft Beer & Cheese Bonanza: Artisanal beer + Cheese Expert + Cheese-of-the-Month Membership


Refine your palette and your liver, with 50% off a beer-soaked gourmet cheese extravaganza at the most revered fromage shop in all the land, Artisanal. First, you'll start with a half-hour reception featuring bottles of Cava, as well as platters of cheese and Rewards-exclusive grilled-cheese amuse-bouche. You'll then sit down for a majestic 1hr-and-a-half involving a plate of six cave-aged cheeses (plus delicious breads), carefully paired with 5 to 7 varieties of craft brews: respected boutique brands like Rogue, Smuttynose, Dogfish Head, and Stone Brewing -- a beer whose gravitas will help you get over the most troubling thing in your life, the disappearance of Stone Phillips.

Your Thrillist Reward also entitles you to a gratis one-month membership to the Artisanal Cheese Club, offering delivery of four specially-selected cheeses at peak ripeness. Or: if you're just hoping for a cheese class, there's a third option, where a mere $25 gets you $50 towards one of Artisanal's vaunted classes, from "Great Iberian Peninsula" to "Sexy Cheese" -- so, Paris Stilton?

Grab a spot at one of the 2 Beer & Cheese Pairings on 4/5, AND 4/19. Or secure $50 towards any cheese class for a mere $25.
