Our cheese department offers a variety of artisan and everyday cheeses from both local and distant producers. We offer a huge variety of cow’s milk cheeses as well as cheeses made from goat’s milk and sheep’s milk. Let our cheeses carry your taste buds from Minnesota to Europe and back again – our cheese passport can get you started and offers recommendations on beer and wine pairings too!
Speaking of pairings…
Stop by during one of their tastings to sample expert pairings of the best beer and cheese, buy some brew, and then head over to Mississippi Market West 7th to pick up the cheeses to compliment your beer!
