    CG, awesome thread. Can't believe I hadn't read through it all before. Quincy is a hellhole for most everything, but we do have one good cheese shop. No new styles ever come in, but we do get Marieke Gouda, Pleasant Ridge Reserve, and the occasional Capriole.

    How's the shop going?

    Hey- thanks :)

    haven't been keeping the thread up but all my cheese time is in the shop right now. Construction should be done 12/25. First inventory showing up 12/26 the rest 12/28. Training 27-30 and opening January 2.

    I'll be carrying Pleasant Ridge and Marieke - a few things from Capriole too. Does your shop get O'Banon from her?

    Usually just Wabash Cannonball and Piper's pyramide. I always try to grab some Sofie when I go home as I absolutely love that.



    Doing a mini beer/cheese pairing with my tasting group tonight. 8 year cheddar, Marieke, Marieke w/ fennel, and a cheap but serviceable blue. Beers are Heady Topper, Kiwi Rising, Triton Four Barrel Brown, Odell Fernet Aged Porter (I'm thinking this with the fennel marieke will be awesome), Schlafly BA barley wine, and Schlafly Xmas ale. Should be a good time.

    If you have pairing/tasting notes/reactions- please send my way... Twin Cities are so hoppy with their beers... really hard to pair with most cheeses. I have about 30 bottles to sample- I want six or so local brews for the shop... definitely carrying a few from Lift Bridge- since they brew 2 miles from the shop and the actual bridge is 100 yards away from my front door.

    Drinking Fulton Sweet Child of Vine at the moment... meh.


    Ask your shop to get you an O'Banon.

    Super hoppy is great with aged cheddar. Something about that 8 year cheddar kinda sucked all the flavor and resin from the hoppy beers and left your palate relatively clean. Really cool.


    Stout (non barrel aged) with creamy blue was good. As was marieke with stout. And Gouda with a coffee porter was awesome too.

    I've just read at Metro (wholesale) that due to the cold temperatures and bad weather, there was too few hay production and the goats produced too few milk. Thus, and because demand of goats milk cheese keeps increasing, there will be a shorting of (European?) goats milk cheese in the first quarter of 2014.

    Couldn't find any details with a short Google search. Do you have more information?

    First I've heard. Doubt it is true for every producer. Just like wines, farmers have good and bad years. Larger commodity producers might have to change scale.
