Chocolate Stout Cheddar

(3 customer reviews)



We partnered with fellow B Corporation Hopworks Urban Brewery in Portland, OR to create a certified organic Chocolate Stout beer, which they brew using organic Valrhona Chocolate. During the cheesemake process, we pour their beer directly into the vat along with the cheese curds. As the cheese ages, it develops a sweet maltiness and subtle marbling that make it distinctive. A customer favorite!

Appearance: Pale yellow-white with subtle marbling

Texture: Moderately firm and sliceable, with a creamy, smooth finish

Taste: Malty, savory, tangy, and sweet, with brown butter undertones


  • Combine this sturdy melting cheese with sweet onion jam on thick cut slices of pullman loaf or levain for a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich. It also makes a delicious afternoon snack with a bit of bread and a savory onion or mild pepper jelly.
  • This cheddar pairs perfectly with a variety of beers – particularly lagers and stouts. Not as sharp as many cheddars, Chocolate Stout Cheddar is also delicious with a Chardonnay or Syrah.

    I’m fussy when it comes to dairy products such as cheese. And I do not drink beer. This cheese is definitely worth getting again. Really, really good!

    Love that I found you again!! Had this cheese at a winery years ago it’s my favorite and I was bummed when they stopped carrying it

  3. Demorsha Pennington

    This cheese is my favorite! I get frustrated at times when I can’t find where to buy it. I don’t remember how I got turned on to this cheese but it is one of the best! So tasty! Yummm
