Shepherd’s Purse will be a name that followers of cheesegeek are familiar with. Harrogate Blue has a beautiful golden amber colour, and is matured for a minimum of 10 weeks, it has all the time it needs to develop those creamy, moist, rich flavours that balance the sharp spiciness of the blue veining so craftily. The perfect gateway blue cheese for those on the fence! Paired with Northern Star, a caramel chocolate biscuit porter (5.2%) from Northern Monk, the cheese enhances the caramel notes in the porter. This is a Northern pairing through and through with the cheese hailing from Harrogate and the beer hailing from Leeds.
