Heinrichsthaler Bierkäse

Heinrichsthaler Bierkäse

It’s only appropriate that the springy, beer-washed Heinrichsthaler Bierkäse comes in “kegs.” With buttery, yeasty, and vegetal notes, the wax-coated, barrel-shaped cheese has a powerful yet pleasant flavor that reminds us of crouton-topped French onion soup or an onion bagel. And it pairs fantastically with malty German beer, of course.

Available at various locations.
