Euro Travel Quiz #26 - Say Cheese, Beer and Wine!

Jump to last reply

A fermented quiz this time:

1- Lager and Pilsener beers have generally dominated the European beer market but Ales have always been produced in Belgium and England and a few other places and are now gaining traction elsewhere - what is the basic difference in how ales and lagers are made (brewing process)?

2- France is a wine lovers country thought more and more the younger frogs are turning to beer but in Normandy beer and wine often take a back seat to XXXXX, this regions renown fermented beverage.

3- Normadny is also well-known and best known for what kind of cheese?

4- The Netherlands has some famous cheeses associated with certain towns or cities - what cheese is associated with these cities of the same name:

*** Named after a small town on the IJsselmeer, the former Zuider Zee that is now this fresh water lake - you can walk to this town from Volendam.

*** This cheese town with a cheese named after it lies not far southeast of Utrecht and southwest of Kinderdijk windmill complex.

5- This Dutch town hosts a famous Friday a.m. old-style cheese market Aprils thru Septembers.

6- Mozzarella Cheese traditionally was made from the milk of this animal - traditionally only herded in Italy and Romania - modern mozzarella cheese is now typically made from cow's milk. (I've never seen one of these creatures pasturing in Italy!)

7- Cheese made from the milk of this animal include feta of Greece, Roquefort of France, Manchego of Spain and Pecorino Romano from Italy.

8- Beaune is at the epicenter of what French wine-growing district?

9- These two towns are the commercial centers of the Champagne Region and you can tour the fancy Champagne houses in either?

10 - French sheep cheese is called in general Fromage de XXXXX

The first to name the most correct gets a box of used wine corks (shipping and handling extra)!
