Alemar Cheese Company
Good Thunder

$17.99/EA
Keith Adams, once a finance guy, turned cheesemaker back in 2009 when he transformed his first vat of locally sourced milk into cheese. Based on Old World standards, Pont l’Eveque and Reblochon, Good Thunder is an orange, wrinkly-rind square of dense cream line and creamy paste that spreads wonderfully over torn pieces of fresh bread and sturdy crackers. It’s washed with a local Minnesota craft beer, Surly Bender, and picks up funk and smoothness as it ages. And it goes great with malty ales and well-seasoned salami.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Cider

    Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.

    English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
    Pair with: : Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.

    Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
    Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson or Hudson Red to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.

     

    American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.
    Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleumont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.
