Beer Cheese is an English name for a German cheese called Weisslacker. It is also sometimes called Beer Kaese. It is not called Beer Cheese because it contains beer, but because it is often served with beer. Some eaters of the cheese even dip the cheese in their beer while eating it. Beer Cheese is considered to be too overpowering to serve with wine.
Beer Cheese is a semi-firm cow's milk cheese related to Limburger. It is salty and pungent. Beer Cheese is ripened 7 months in humid conditions.
Beer Cheese is originally from Bavaria, Germany. It is now available in many parts of the world. A version of the cheese is made in the United States, mostly in the state of Wisconsin.
