This is a totally random post, but these products need some plugs!
First off, my alma mater has made their own Clemson blue cheese since the early 40s, and I always pick some up for my parents when I’m up there.
The history is pretty interesting; they used to cure and store the cheese in Stumphouse Tunnel, a creepy unfinished railroad tunnel not too far from Clemson. I’ve been there several times, and it’s cool and dank
and scary in there – the perfect environment for curing cheese! Now that the weather is getting cooler and shipping cheese is a little less scary, go order some!
Secondly, I’m a pumpkin beer whore. My favorite has always been Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale from Anheuser-Busch, even though I’ve tried dozens of others. (Seriously, I stock up and enjoy pumpkin beer all year long…expiration date be damned). But now, I think Jack has been dethroned.
Crappy label, awesome beer. It’s by Smuttynose, and it’s not too spicy! I know with craft beers like this, opinions vary wildly, but at first taste I knew this one was good. If you’re a fan of pumpkin and/or beer, seek this out! They even have a cute spotted seal on their logo!
What’s your favorite “weird” flavored beer? I just tried Wells banana bread beer last week that was pretty awesome!
