A Match Made in Beer and Cheese Heaven: Folksbier Washed Willoughby!!

FolskbierA Saxelby exclusive and a Brooklyn Original!! Being obsessive nerds for all things fermented, we at Saxelby felt driven to unite the worlds of beer and cheese just in time for holiday season feasting.

We’ve collaborated with our friends at Jasper Hill Farm to custom wash an entire batch of Willoughby (that’s 1000 wheels!!!) in a beer of our choosing. After some arduous searching, we found the perfect brew for the task: Recurring Dreams IPA from our Red Hook neighbor Folksbier.

After a few weeks bathing in this juicy, floral and hop-bomb of an ale, these Willoughbys are pungent, full-flavored and entirely one-of-a-kind!

Brooklyn’s Finest: Salvatore Bklyn Ricotta Available Only At saxelbycheese.com!!


Saxelby Cheesemongers is proud to debut Salvatore Bklyn Ricotta, for sale online only at saxelbycheese.com!! This luscious, dense and rich ricotta is made fresh to order every day just a block away from our headquarters in Red Hook, Brooklyn!

Salvatore Bklyn began as a labor of love after Betsy Devine and Rachel Marks encountered the ricotta of one Tuscan elder gent called Salvatore whilst traveling in Tuscany. They took time out of their vacation to learn from the master and brought their new craft home to Brooklyn. After many trials they managed to tame their wild American curds into a creamy and delectable cheese.

Betsy’s ricotta made a splash years ago at Brooklyn’s famed Smorgasburg market, where Martha Stewart dubbed it her “favorite ricotta in the whole world”. Betsy served it true rustic Italian fashion: on crusty bread with nothing but prosciutto and a drizzle of olive oil. Try with our Casella’s Prosciutto and see what the lines were all about!
