This is as classic as blue cheese gets. Made by Julie and Tony Hook just outside of Madison Wisconsin, this creamy, spicy blue cheese'll knock your socks off. When you think blue cheese dresssing, blue cheese burger, blue cheese anything, this blue will do you right. The milk for the cheese is sourced from small neighboring dairies that farm with respect for the land and their animals. Hook's Blue is rindless, and has a dense and creamy Roquefort-esque texture that melts on your tongue. It is aged for 12 months, during which time rich, fruity, and peppery notes develop within the paste. Pairing Notes: Stouts & Porters, richly oaked reds, dessert and oxidized wines.
