[Video] Beer and Cheese Tasting at Strongrope Brewery

Microbrews and specialty cheeses are a joy to pair together.  Both are more complex and nuanced in flavor, texture, and body than their more conventional counterparts. So you can imagine that Jason Sahler, owner of Strongrope Brewery in Brooklyn, and I had a lot to talk about.  We threw in a wild card pairing at the end to show just how adventurous you can be while pairing different styles of cheese and beer together.  It really depends what flavor profile you are trying to highlight in both the beer and the cheese.  Depending on which beer you choose, the cheese will be highlighted in different ways, and vice versa.

Featured cheeses: Gruyere AOP, Beecher's Handmade Cheese Clothbound Reserve, and Saxelby's Bone Char Pearl.

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
