Briar Rose’s Lorelei: Proof Goat Cheese Loves Beer


Meaty, washed rind cheeses are often made with cow’s milk, but that’s not the case with Briar Rose Creamery‘s Lorelei. Made with goat cheese and washed in beer, Lorelei is most at home slathered on a baguette, helping you trudge through the end of winter.

Lorelei is a beer-washed goat’s milk cheese with a rich flavor alternating between bacon and freshly baked, yeasty bread whose texture lends itself to being thickly spread on a baguette. It’s named after German river siren with a reputation for luring sailors to their doom (crashing their ships into rocks) with her song (noted, said sailors may have heard wailing wind and also been slightly tipsy).
