Rogue Creamery takes a Red Ribbon for Chocolate Stout Cheddar and wins Best of Show for Rogue River Blue

Rogue Chocolate Stout Cheddar won a Red Ribbon (2nd place in its category) for a second year in a row at the American Cheese Society conference held in Austin Aug 5-8, 2009. My beer is infused into this cheese, how surreal! It was exciting sitting next to Rod from Willamette Valley Cheese Co during the awards, he won several for his Dutch-style cheeses (love the Perrydale), and witness the multiple awards for Rogue Creamery, including Best of Show for their Rogue River Blue and to be able to congratulate and share the moment with Cary and David! If you are anywhere close to Portland, OR - The Wedge is October 3rd, an Oregon Cheese Guild event hosted at the Green Dragon.
