Paulus Beer Cheese
Beer and Cheese were traditionally made in monasteries throughout Europe. Is it any wonder that the two pair so well together? Paulus Beer cheese from The Netherlands goes one step further, by combining the intense flavor of a fine mature Gouda cheese with aromatic hops and beer.
The history of Paulus Beer Cheese dates back to the city of Utrecht in the sixteenth century, where the Paulus Abbey – the second-oldest monastery in the Netherlands – had its own brewhouse. Using water drawn from the city’s canals, the Benedictine monks brewed their own beer and everyone in Utrecht, rich and poor, drank it. In 1580, however, the abbey was dissolved and for centuries the beer was lost. That was until just a few years ago, when the original recipe was finally rediscovered. By reviving this age-old brewing method and combining it with the traditional craft of cheesemaking, Paulus Beer Cheese brings a passionate new dimension to two typical, much-loved aspects of Dutch culture. To enjoy it at its best, share Paulus Beer Cheese with family and friends and wash it down with a delicious glass of ale.
