Charitable Cheese! Cheese 101 Tasting Benefiting NAMI Central Texas (South Lamar)

Regular price$45.00

Come eat cheese for your community! This event is our "Charitable Cheese Cause," raising money for and breaking bread together to benefit NAMI Central Texas.

Our most popular tasting event - and the award-winner that put us on the map. In fact, this class includes a unique tasting menu monthly; we've had folks come back regularly! Great for those new to cheese or longtime aficionados, this is our best class to get a little bit of everything: we'll talk you through the "7 styles of cheese" while exploring multiple milk types. Better yet, each cheese comes with a unique pairing - from chocolate to cured meat, preserves to pickles, and more. 

One ticket = one person and includes:

  • 7 cheeses
  • 7 food pairings
  • additional goodies, such as bread, olives, & corn nuts (GF crackers avail if requested in allergies)


While water is provided at the tasting, you may choose to add on our recommended wine flight at the time of ticket purchase (below). Additionally, you may purchase beverages at the event, selecting from wine, beer, cider, sparkling water, and non-alcoholic wine.  Note: this location is not BYOB.
