Looking to make your shoppers’ lives easier when it comes to entertaining? I have three words for you: spicy beer cheese—Pine River’s Spicy Beer Cold Pack Cheese Spread, to be exact. The 2nd place 2020 World Championship Cheese Contest award winner is now available in Costco stores throughout the Midwest. The dip is ideal for everything from holiday parties to tailgating and has been a hit amongst consumers.
“Spicy Beer continues to gain popularity year after year and is now one of our top three flavors,” says Kayla Bohn, Sales Manager for Pine River. “The delectable combination of Wisconsin aged sharp Cheddar, spicy cayenne pepper, and just a hint of your favorite ale makes it a perfect choice for a larger-quantity offering for the holiday season.”
Pine River Spicy Beer Cold Pack Cheese Spread will be on Midwest Costco shelves for a limited time. The offering comes in a 2 lb party-size cup that is convenient for party hosts during holiday gatherings. Beyond snacking, the versatile spread can also be used for cooking, adding a flavorful flair to any dish.
“It is easy to melt the cheese spread in the microwave to use as a dip for soft pretzels or spread on a bun to spice up hamburgers,” adds Kayla. “I suggest cross-merchandising these items alongside our Spicy Beer spread to inspire shoppers to fill their baskets.”
In addition to these tasty ideas, Pine River makes it easy for retailers and consumers to find even more creative recipes on its website and social media channels.
All Pine River cheese spreads are made with Grade A Wisconsin Cheddar, graded in-house by Licensed Wisconsin Cheese Graders, and Grade A Butter from a local dairy. Each batch uses a custom blend of aged Cheddar to ensure consistent flavor and texture. The company also runs a state-of-the-art, SQF-certified facility, ensuring products are manufactured to the highest quality and food safety standards.
Could your deli department be the next home of this versatile, flavorful spread? I sure hope so, and I’m sure your shoppers do too.
