Night of the Living...(Barrel-Aged) Dead!

"Night of the Living Dead" will showcase the 1968 cinematic classic in the Phantom Theatre on their 130“ UHD projection screen, along with ten hand-selected and rare, barrel-aged beers from amazing breweries. These decadent libations will be paired with artisan cheese from Vagabond Cheese Company and chocolate. But beware… the building will be quarantined. Summoned by an insatiable thirst for barrel-aged beer, live zombies will roam the brewery grounds… searching for something to satisfy their unrelenting thirst. The evening’s soundtrack will be provided by Los Angeles-based DJ Chee-bo… funky, atmospheric & retro jams all on vinyl. You have been warned. Enter at your own risk.

Cheesemonger Invitational

Alex, owner of Vagabond Cheese, will be competing in the Cheesemonger Invitational for the second time. CMI, as we call it, is a semi annual competition of cheesemongers from around the United States. The challenges include a written test, cutting perfect 1/4, 1/3, and 1/2 lb pieces of cheese, a blind tasting, a salesmanship challenge, a cheese wrapping competition, and "the perfect bite," where cheesemongers must compose a perfect bite consisting of a cheese (not of their choosing) and any other foods they wish. Those mongers who make it to the finals face unknown challenges that lay just beyond the horizon.

Last time around, Alex made it to the final round and placed 4th; enough to earn a trip to visit the Cellars at Jasper Hill and Vermont Creamery in VT (stay tuned for pictures from that trip). This time, we're hoping that he bests his last go-around and brings home the gold.

PS: Meet Adam, the creator of the Cheesemonger Invitational...
