Partnered with fellow B Corporation Hopworks Urban Brewery in Portland, OR to create a certified organic Chocolate Stout beer, which they brew using organic Valrhona Chocolate. During the cheese making process, the beer is poured directly into the vat along with the cheese curds. As the cheese ages, it develops a sweet maltiness and subtle marbling that make it distinctive. A customer favorite!
Combine this sturdy melting cheese with sweet onion jam on thick cut slices of pullman loaf or levain for a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich. It also makes a delicious afternoon snack with a bit of bread and a savory onion or mild pepper jelly.
This cheddar pairs perfectly with a variety of beers – particularly lagers and stouts. Not as sharp as many cheddars, Chocolate Stout Cheddar is also delicious with a Chardonnay or Syrah.
