PONDHOPPER made by Vintage Cheese Co/Tumalo Farms (Travers, CA) – Semi-hard, cooked and pressed cheese made from pasteurized goat’s milk and beer from a local microbrewery. Each wheel is aged for 2-3 months and is wiped and turned daily. It has a tangy, mild to sharp flavor with an echo of Cascade hops in the finish. The texture is surprisingly open when compared to the Classico; this is due to the presence of the beer.
