Columbus Salame Cacciatore
Literallly meaning "Little Hunter" in Italian, cacciatorini refers to the ability to travel in a pocket or knapsack. Not going hunting? Don't worry, it's equally suitable for a picnic or just for a mid-day snack. These 1/4 pound sausages are hand tied and have a mild delicate flavor and savory pork aroma. The natural casing is supposed to have that wonderful yeasty mold on the exterior. Just peel before slicing, like an incredible meaty banana.

Flavors range from grassy to grapefruit, earthy and dry to resinous pine, depending on which hop varietals are used.
Pair with: Cheeses with enough body to stand up to the bitterness, like clothbound cheddar or aged Gouda.
