Octoberfest - Blues & Brews™ Series
In 2008 a local Cheesemonger suggested pairing two Minnesota originals, Summit Brewery’s seasonal brews and Caves of Faribault’s St. Pete’s Select Blue Cheese. The Cheesemaker met the Brewmaster and the Blues & Brew’s™ Series was born.
Our love of beer goes all the way back to 1854 when the natural sandstone Caves of Faribault began as beer cellars for Fleckenstein Brewing. The brewery closed during Prohibition and transitioned to blue cheese production and affinage in 1936.
Summit Brewing Company was established in 1986 to bring craft brewing back to the Midwest. Octoberfest Blue is award winning St. Pete’s Select blue cheese bathed in Summit Brewing’s Octoberfest Beer.
The weeks of beer bathing in harmony with the complex cave chemistry amplifies natural blue flavors while evoking an almost visceral earthy note that still finishes clean.
In short, Octoberfest is an original taste sensation meant for experienced lovers of blue only!
