We’re Welcoming Fall with Saxelby Cheesemongers

Oktoberfest Willoughby_web size

Ah, fall: the season to pull on your favorite jacket, lace up your boots, and seek out the perfect cheese to accompany the crisp air and hearty foods of the season. Fortunately, you’ve got us and Saxelby Cheesemongers here to help, and we’ve got you covered.

When that cool-weather craving calls, our brand-new collaboration, Willoughby, will be there to answer. The fromage experts at Saxelby used our Oktoberfest festbier to wash the rind of this soft, creamy cheese before aging it at The Cellars at Jasper Hills. The wash lends deeply savory and pungent notes of beef, toast, and cream to complement the buttery creme fraiche notes of the cheese. It’s the perfect companion to giant pretzels, hearty stews, and all your favorite fall snacks. But be careful: this is a very limited release, so it’s up to you to find Willoughby while you can.

Head to Saxelby Cheesemongers in person or order online to secure a wheel of Willoughby of your own. You can also sample the cheese and learn more at a handful of tasting events, including:
+ Friday, September 14, 6:30-8:30 PM: Saxelby Cheesemongers Chelsea Market. The first ten people to purchase a wheel of Willoughby and a six-pack of Brooklyn Brewery beer will receive a free Brooklyn Brewery stein!
Friday, September 21, 5-8 PM: Saxelby Cheesemongers Pop-Up at Brooklyn Brewery. Stop by our Tasting Room and snack on Oktoberfest-inspired cheese plates with pretzels from Runner and Stone.
Monday, September 24, 8:15-9:45 PM: Beer & Cheese Pairing Class at Brooklyn Brewery. Join experts from us and Saxelby Cheesemongers for a class on creating the perfect beer and cheese pairing, right in our Tasting Room.
