Three Beers Three Cheeses
A diverse balance of three brilliant cheeses: the light and fresh Anster; tangy and strong St Andrew's 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:
Kirkham’s Lancashire. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Third-generation Lancashire-maker Graham (Mrs Kirkham’s son!) still follows the traditional two-day curd method, giving a buttery, yoghurty flavour with a fluffy and light texture that melts in the mouth; this is Lancashire how it should taste….
Matched with Naylor’s IPA. 500ml 4.2% abv. A golden hoppy pale ale.
St Andrew’s Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Jane makes cheese with rich, unpasteurised milk from her husband’s cattle. This Cheddar is classically Scottish in style: aged for 14 months, it is powerful, strong and tangy – a real sharp traditional Cheddar.
Matched with Naylor’s Yorkshire Ale. 500ml 4.0% abv. A nutty classic Bitter.
Young Buck Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An outstanding raw-milk blue cheese from Northern Ireland. Using old-fashioned British blue cheese recipes from the turn of the 19th century, Young Buck cheese is traditionally made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese.
Matched with Naylor’s Black ‘n’ Tan. 500ml 4.6% abv. A traditional Yorkshire bitter mixed with a rich porter.
