How It's Made

Deschutes Black Butte Porter is boiled down over the course of 10 continuous hours to create a super-concentrated molasses-like beer syrup. This syrup is poured into our fresh cheddar curds, pressed into blocks and allowed to age for at least 2 years.  The result is a sharp cheddar accented with beer marbling that imparts serious beer flavor. As an added bonus, due to the age, this cheddar sports flavor crystals that add a unique snap to each bite. This cheddar is made for the cheese connoisseur that appreciates a quality sharp cheddar along with their micro-brew.


Dry in texture this cheese definitely works best as a compliment to any cheese tray. Serve along with other strong flavors and this cheese will have no issues holding its own. Perfectly pairs with "game day" foods such as wings, ribs, nuts, chips and sausage. Try it with meatballs and gravy for an interesting European-type flavor profile. Surprisingly, jams or crackers with a bit of sweetness in them compliment the sweetness in the porter and take this cheddar to a whole new level worth exploring.
