This rustic Italian blue gives new meaning to beer cheese. Made by the Rosso family in the Biella region of Italy, BirbaBlu gets soaked in blonde ale and covered with malted wheat. This unique process gives the cheese its lightly fermented and fruity essence. Undertones of cooked caramel are also present in every bite. With its prevailing buttery and salty notes, it plays well with something sweet, like a smear of Trade Street Strawberry Fig Chipotle Jam.

“A dense blue bringing nutty undertones and a sweetness (this comes from soaking in ale), it creates the ultimate cheese for your Aperitivo hour. Slice and eat alongside a Negroni or Prosecco.”
