This season's Pairings Package includes:

- Risin' Creek Wasabi Chevre (paired with Lemongrass Coconut): Fresh goats' milk cheese--or chevre--is known for its lemon-y creaminess, and this Chevre from Indiana's own Risin' Creek is a gold medal winner at the U.S. Cheese Championship! For this pairing, the cheesemakers blend in wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, for a fresh bite to compliment the ciders' tropical twist. 

- Tulip Tree Foxglove (paired with Tropical Hops): Tulip Tree Creamery washes the rind of this double-cream cheese with a mixture of natural cultures and beer. This traditional cheese-aging treatment lends the cheese its distinctive orange colored rind as well as deliciously funky, sweet-sour flavors. Tropical Hops Cider, with its complex hop profile, stands up to this rich cheese with a perfectly crisp contrast. 

- Smoking Goose Lomo (paired with Melon Medley): Smoking Goose hand trims this whole pork loin to cure with paprika, black pepper, garlic, and more. Sliced thin, the silky cured pork plays on the tongue a bit like prosciutto with a rim of floral heat from the paprika piccante. Sip Melon Medley with this slice for a twist on the classic "prosciutto e melone" pairing as the cider's summer melon sweetness lifts Lomo's savory spice.

- Jacobs & Brichford Everton (paired with Autumntide): This husband-and-wife team raise the cows, do the milking, and make the cheese all on their farm + creamery in Connersville, Indiana. Their Everton is inspired by old-world Alpine style cheeses with the traditional dry grassy flavors and aromas reminiscent of the pastures on which the milking cows graze. It's a firm, aged cheese ideal for autumn, just like the fall spices in Autumntide's cozy sip.
