Beemster Medium – May Cheese of the Month
After what’s seemed like forever, the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and we can finally go outside without our jackets on! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and here at Bottle King, we’ve got everything you need to show your appreciation for mom. Sure to impress is our new cheese of the month: Beemster Medium.
You may recall the Vineyard Market featuring fellow Beemster cheeses in the past, such as the company’s Vlaskaas and XO. Known well for their aged Goudas, Beemster is a Dutch company that uses only fresh, natural ingredients and milk from happy free-roaming cows. Said to be the most consumed cheese in the Netherlands, their Medium Gouda is aged for 6 months, making it incredibly creamy and smooth with a slight zesty tang.
Beemster tells that its farmers enjoy this cheese on bread for breakfast, on sandwiches for lunch, and incorporated into their dinners with a dark beer or glass of red wine. We say to give it a taste with some fresh fruit and salted mixed nuts. No matter how you choose to enjoy it, this cheese is a must-try.
