Hello cheese friends! For those of you in our nation’s capital, get ready to celebrate the end of winter (and avoid the teaming hordes of tourists here to see the cherry blossoms) with the 2nd annual Ripe! DC cheese party.
On Sunday, April 3, local and regional cheesemakers and top European importers will share their wares at the district’s Right Proper Brewing Company. The only brewery in town with an in-house cheese team, they’ll be serving up hot melty cheese in the form of raclette and fondue and offering tastes of beer to pair with the all-you-can-eat cheese smorgasbord.
Making a special appearance as well will be affineurs Crown Finish Caves from Brooklyn, debuting this year’s collaboration Right Proper beer-washed cheese.
Above, the stunning cheese blossoms created by event mastermind Katie Carter of co-host Kennedy MTI. What cheesy art creations will you find this year? Get your tickets to this must-attend event here, and we’ll see you at the cheese party!
