Beecher's Wins Big in the American Cheese Society Awards

Take that, Wisconsin.

The American Cheese Society just announced the results of this year's national awards, and Beecher's Flagship Cheese won second-runner up to Best of Show. In the world of cheese geeks, this is HUGE. (The Flagship also won first place in the Cheddar category.) If I were you, I'd hustle on down to their Pike Place Market store and pick yourself up a pound before cheese stores around the country siphon away the local supply.

Local favorite (okay, my favorite) Estrella Family Creamery picked up a first place award in the "smoked Italian styles" category for its Weebles—named after its pear shape—and Oregon cheesemakers Rogue Creamery, Willamette Valley Cheese Co., and Tillamook County Creamery gathered a buttload of awards.

What do cheesemakers use to toast their victory? Raw milk?
