Talk about the ultimate smooth operator, cheesecake pretty much creams the dessert competition when it comes to pure seductiveness. Just mention the word “cheesecake” and the mouthwatering begins. No wonder today is dedicated to its deliciousness!
Of course, all that velvety goodness requires a delicate beverage balance. You want a wine, spirit or yes—beer—that will complement rather than combat the cheesecake’s distinctive taste.
Fortunately, Spec’s experts love cheesecakes almost as much as they love the libations that pair with them! Ask for a suggestion from our cream of the crop collection when you come in.
In the meantime, here’s a quick reference guide to get you and your sweet tooth started!
Classic – Choose a Sauvignon Blanc or a sweet wine like Riesling.

Key Lime – A red wine like Nebbiolo and Syrah, or white wine like Sauvignon Blanc.
Caramel – The sweetness of a Moscato wine complements caramel cheesecakes. Like something drier? Try Tawny Port.
