Beer Cheese

Beer and cheese is a combination known to us as Good, but beer cheese? Not so known.

According to wikipedia, it's also known as Weisslacker, and it's a German cheese that's is now made in the U.S. too. I don't think there's beer in it - it gets its name from the practice of eating it with beer or dipping into the beer (this I did not try).

I can verify that it is a pungent and salted cheese. Not too pungent - but flavorful enough to stand on its own, making it a very good cheese to nibble on.


  1. If you're looking for a good beer cheese, check out Brovetto Dairy's Harperfield. Soaked in Ommegang Ale, it's an awesome cheese. They took the basic recipe for Tilsit and made a farmsted cheese with a beautiful hoppy flavor. Def. worth checking out. Cheap too. If you order directly from Brovetto, it's 7.25/#

  2. Speaking of beer cheese, Kettle Chips has this cheddar beer flavor? Sounded like a good idea, but really not that good...
