Tasting was open to anyone who expressed an interest and would bring beer – I like random – tweeting for expression of interest RSVPs. Turned out it was a number of @soba_auckland members who tweeted back and attended.
NZ take note: majority of American cheeses muled here were raw and animal rennet. I anticipate more American cheese will soon be coming to these shores for all to purchase and taste.
American cheese tasted (with assorted donated beers):
Jasper Hill Weybridge
Roelli Dunbarton Blue (the top pick of the day!)
Finger Lakes Farmstead Bier Meck
Spring Brook Farm Tarentaise
Meadow Creek Dairy Appalachian
LaClare Farms Evalon
Keeleys Cheese Across the Pond
