With the wide variety of wonderful California cheeses available to consumers, picking the perfect pair can be a challenge. The California Milk Advisory Board has developed a mobile tool that takes the guesswork out of pairing your favorite Real California Cheeses with beer and wine. The “Pair Savvy” smart phone APP is a user-friendly application that works on both iPhone and Android devices. All you need to do is decide which beer, wine or Real California Cheese you would like to pair up and we’ll do the rest.

How it works: Once the app is enabled, you can select by cheese, wine or beer. “Pair Savvy” will come up with a pairing that has a list of suggested cheeses, California cheesemakers and brand names you can purchase at retail. Some pairings even suggest fruit accompaniments, which is great when putting together a cheese plate or display. Users can also save pairings and rate the pairings they have tried. There’s even a “Surprise Pairing” option for the more daring at heart.
