Cheese. Beer. Enough said? Yeah, we did it; teamed up with our neighbors and friends down the road at Prairie Artisan Ales here in Krebs OK. Using the same ingredients they age their legendary Imperial Stout on we have created a truly boldly unique cheese. Each batch of this raw Jersey cow’s milk contains a heaping amount of Ancho Chilies, Coffee Bean, Vanilla Bean and Cocoa Nibs. After this cheese is brine salted, we let it soak in BOMB Imperial Stout for 3 days. The result; a rich buttery cheese packed with an array of taste sensations and a smooth stout finish. Wow. Give it a try! The milk for all of our hand-crafted cheeses is from family owned single source dairies and is hormone and pesticide free.
