A nod to the washed-rind stinkers originally made by Trappist monks, Beer Washed Tomme from Farm Fromage presents a Pennsylvania-made twist on the tradition. 

Farm Fromage was launched by Howard Field as a means to promote Lancaster County cheesemakers. Being somewhat isolated by their location and the prevalent Amish lifestyle, dairy distribution was limited until Field stepped in. Field endeavours to promote small, local producers of raw milk and cheese, selling their products to specialty shops and dining establishments in major cities.

Beer Washed Tomme is washed in a local milk stout from Lancaster Brewing Company which, much like the cheesemakers of Lancaster County, prides itself on old-world craftsmanship.

Tasting Notes

Lending the cheese its malty notes and mild hops, the beer gives the cheese a distinct pungency.

Pairings

Try Beer Washed Tomme on a burger, or pair it with some black bread and red onion.
