California Artisan Cheese Guild to Host Third Annual SF Cheese Fest


SAN FRANCSICO, CA
Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

The California Artisan Cheese Guild, California’s only nonprofit dedicated to sustaining the state’s artisan cheesemaking community, announced the occasion of its Third Annual SF Cheese Fest. The festival, held September 16, from 6-9 p.m. at the historic Social Hall, is celebrating the theme “Melting Together,” as well as the gratifying experience of bringing people together to share in the richness of the state’s artisan cheese community.

Guests will meet and mingle with 22 Guild-member cheesemakers from across the state, sampling dozens of new and classic California cheeses.

Pairing up with the melty fromage will be beers from local favorites: Magnolia Brewing Co., Lagunitas Brewing, and Fort Point Beer; ciders from AppleGarden Farm, Golden State Cider, and Titled Shed Cider; and wines from Herb Lamb Vineyards and Belden Barns. Additionally, complimentary bites will be offered by Cheese School of SF, Mission Cheese/Makers Common, Freestone Artisan Cheese, and Greenleaf, along with samples of cured meats, pickles, jams, and confections from local makers.
