Spotted Cow, followed by their Snowshoe Red Ale (a special release) and finished up, uncharacteristically for me, with a Raspberry Tart.
These beers were once again the highlight of the trip. We walked away with 2 mixed 6 packs including several Spotted Cow, Organic Revolution, Snowshoe Ale, a Stone Soup and a Cabin Fever Honey Bock along with a 22oz. special Golden Ale.
Carr Valley Cheese shop which was less than a mile away. The guy in the store is part of the family who owns the company and he gave us a great overview of the history and tastes of several different cheeses. I came home with a Monastery Cow's Milk cheese which promises to be a stinkier cheese (just how I like it)
We also bought the Bessie's Blend, which is a blend of Cow and Goat milk which took 2nd place at the 2006 American Cheese Society Competition. Jason and I both loved this one, although I think I'll end up having the Monastery all to myself! I highly recommend exploring their cheeses. Everything we tried was well crafted and at about $11.00/pound an incredible deal. You'lll pay more than that for crappy, plastic tasting cheeses at the Jewel.
That night Jason cooked up a delicious pork tenderloin with sides of roasted cauliflower and carrots. We enjoyed the novelty of eating vegetables again, enjoyed a few last beers and played Taboo and Catch-Phrase for the rest of the night.
