If you’re like me and like to mix your cheese eating and wine and beer drinking with meeting cheesemakers and raising funds for California dairy, have I got the event for you!
There’s still some tickets left for the Cheese School’s “Meet the Cheesemaker Event.” The folks that craft our favorite Cali wheels from Point Reyes, Bellwether, Nicasio and beyond will be serving their amazing creations, wine will be freely poured, and Moonlight Brewing will be supplying the beer. If the cheese and call to fundraising wasn’t enough to touch your artisan heart, the beer should do it- Moonlight makes some of the best and innovative brews in California (read more here).
So if you’re free this Thursday night, 7-9pm, you know where to be. The event is set up to fund California’s Artisan Cheese Guild, an organization that supports our cheeseamakers through education, legal support, and resources.
From the Cheese School’s site:
“Rub elbows with Cowgirl Creamery, Bellwether Farms, Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co., Redwood Hill, Marin French, Cypress Grove, Laura Chenel, Nicasio Valley, Bleating Heart, North Bay Curds and Whey, Beehive, and Epicurean Connection. You’ll dig into fondue made from California artisan cheese and James Beard award winning author Laura Werlin will share two of her favorite mac + cheese from her latest book. Moonlight Brewing will supply the beer. Wine will flow courtesy of Herb Lamb Vineyards, Gary Farrell, and Corkscrew. Join us for food, drinks, and a cheesy-good time. “
The event is $35. The cheese, beers, time you get to spend chatting up California’s best dairy craftsmen, and the support you’re giving to the California Cheese Guild is worth every penny.
