Move Over Wisconsin…. There’s a New Big Cheese!

August 15th, 2011

Oregon has long been a favorite of beer-lovers for our great craft beer tradition. We’re now becoming a favorite with a whole new group of foodies, namely cheese-lovers. Oregon cheesemakers won 12 awards at the 27th annual American Cheese Society’s cheese competition, including Best of Show for the Rogue River Blue by Rogue Creamery. Local favorite and Oregon Coast must-do-destination Tillamook County Creamery Association came away with four awards.

And in a blending of these two great Oregon traditions, Chocolate Stout Cheddar by Rogue Creamery won 3rd place in the All Cheddar Category. Mmmmm….cheese and beer. Yum!
