Last week the cheese department received an amazing new cheese from the Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon called HOPYARD! This cheese is made by pressing fresh hop blossoms into the curd and aging for 6 months.
“Hopyard is an IPA malted milk shake with savory texture and buttery finish. The hop petals provide an herbaceous olfactory hit like the first notes from a freshly poured IPA. The layers of sweet brown butter and hazelnuts with slightly old-fashioned buttermilk tones follow.”
The end note is a fresh and detailed floral hop flavor. The hops are grown on the Rogue’s Farm, Château Rogue and the milk is Food Alliance Certified Sustainable Cow’s Milk (rBST free of course!). Come by the cheese department for a sample, and enjoy a one of a kind cheese with your fresh summer IPA’s!
