THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must-Have List: Beecher’s Flagship Cheddar Cheese

This is my all-time favorite cheddar cheese in the world and if you have a cheese lover on your Holiday shopping list, surprise them with this delicacy! Who doesn’t love cheese in their stockings?

The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher’s signature cheese, was handcrafted just as Beecher’s Handmade Cheese opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in November of 2003.

Flagship is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months under the watchful eye of the cheesemaker to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. Outstanding on a Beecher’s Cracker!
