Cheese and beer is a match made in heaven! Just think abou it: what do you usually have with your cheese? Crackers, right? Well, crackers and beer have common main ingredients so this is a natural match.
The general principle is strong beer with the strong and matured cheeses and the lighter, less flavourful beers to go with the less stronger cheeses.
However, as with all food and beer combinations you should look for balance. The flavours in the beer should enhance the flavours in the cheese and vice versa.
