Strap in, because The Freddie is an absolute belter of a box that is ready to rock n' roll. You know that bit of Bohemian Rhapsody (just the best song of all time) where they start singing Galileo and you just feel electrified. Well this cheese and craft beer box will have you feeling like that. NB. What you see is what you get (we're referring to the cheese and beer here; glasses you'll have to supply yourself).

  • 200g Heckfield with 330ml of Quantic
  • 200g Cenarth Brie with 330ml of Pogo
  • 200g Yorkshire Blue with 330ml Millionaire

You can select delivery dates up until 23rd Christmas. During Christmas week your cheese delivery could arrive +/- 2 days outside of your preferred delivery date.

Delivery is FREE and it comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee. If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your festive cheesegeek delivery.

A rock n' roll cheese and craft beer box

Three outstanding artisan British cheeses, a hard, a soft and a blue, because we love variety at Cheese HQ, paired with some craft beers, a pale ale, an IPA and a stout (told you we love variety) from the legends at Wild Beer.

Add on a pair of sustainable bamboo cheesegeek socks from Swole Panda, sensationally soft, and of course, CG yellow, to make it a great present.

The Perfect Pairings

Heckfield x Quantic

A semi-hard cow's milk cheese paired with a session IPA.

More

Heckfield doesn't fit in a box. Well, we should clarify - it does fit in one of our beautiful, environmentally friendly cheese transporters, however, it doesn't fit in a cheese type box. It's perhaps similar to a cheddar but with added benefits - it's decadently creamy and buttery. This is thanks to the incredible Guernsey milk that makes Heckfield a serious rarity. Guernsey milk is like the Rolls Royce of cow's milk when it comes to cheesemaking, giving Heckfield an incredible richness, and striking yellow colour.

Paired with Quantic Session IPA, this has us feeling fruity. Creamy, hoppy and fresh with a buttery aftertaste. 

Back

Cenarth Brie x Pogo

A mushroomy Welsh brie paired with a hazy pale ale.

More

Made in the style of a traditional French Brie, Cenarth Brie has the classic gooey creamy interior that Brie style cheeses are so famous for, with slightly more intense mushroomy flavours than your traditional brie, that only ripens with age. Carwyn Adams and his family at Caws Cenarth have been making cheese for over three centuries and that experience shows in Cenarth Brie.

Paired with Pogo you get a rich and creamy pairing with a little zing from the orange in the pale ale.

Back

Yorkshire Blue x Millionaire

A creamy blue paired with a decadent stout

More

This baby blue is the perfect gateway cheese for the non-blue fans. It's creamy, mild and a little sweet and it's crumbliness lends itself to salads or soups. Yorkshire blue was the first blue cheese to be produced in Yorkshire in over 30 years and it's no wonder the Northerner's love it (almost as much as they love the Arctic Monkey's). 

Paired with Millionaire this is a surprisingly salty pairing with a burnt butter biscuit (how's that for alliteration) finish!

A good choice for a lover of proper cheese.

Bought as a gift formy husband who loves cheese and beer. Would be even better with real ale, but you can't have everything! Being Welsh, I would note that Gorwydd Caerphilly actually hails from Ceredigion in Mid Wales.
