AleHouse Cheddar is, according to the makers, Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company, a tipsy traditional classic cheddar with a hint of earthy, rich artisan ale. This gourmet cheddar has a fragrant ale nose, a more open, flavorful balance of nuts, hops and sweet notes.
Two distinct types of beer are added – Harpoon Munich Dark and Harpoon IPA. The dark beer gives a distinct striation to the curd and the IPA adds even more complex hop flavor. Not surprisingly, this cheese has been a favorite of many artisan beer lovers and has won several awards including a gold medal at the 2011 LA International Dairy
When you're making a cheese fondue, consider this cheese, you will be amazed. Furthermore, don't shy away from pairing it with wine, like medium read and heartier whites.
