Erin Go Bragh!

Beer and Cheese - BeerAdvocate

May your feet never sweat.
Your neighbor give you ne're a treat.
When flowers bloom, I hope you'll not sneeze.
And may you always have someone to squeeze.
                                 Irish blessing

We're all Irish on St Patrick's Day!
Ham and Cabbage,  Green beer and ofcourse Irish Cheese!  Some are a challenge to find but you should if you can. We've put together a plate of favorites.

St. Tola a mellow goat to start. Followed by Coolea an award winning cows milk, gouda style cheese which is mild and creamy which melts in your mouth. Ofcourse most if us know Dubliner, made from cows milk and aged 12 months with a sweet, nutty flavor that finishs with a bite similar to parmesan. Next is a favorite blue, Cashel Blue. Irelands first farmstead blue. Cows milk, this creamy mild blue is always a hit even to those who dont go for most blue cheeses. And finally we finish with a exciting washed rind cows milk, Adrahan, it has a pungent yet delicate flavor.

An interesting sidenote, the Burns Family also produces Adrahan Lullaby Milk. For my insomnia ridden friends, this milk is created in the animals sleep and collected in the morning, it contains higher levels of melatonin naturally.
