Good Thunder cheese will age for six-to-eight weeks in refrigeration.  As it ages, it will become softer and more funky.

Good Thunder is a washed-rind square.  In fact, it was loosely inspired by Reblochon, and is washed in Surly ™ Bender beer, cultures and salt.  The cheese is washed weekly for three weeks, during which time the wash soaks in slowly, producing an alchemy of flavors between the two.  Someone described it as “Bent River’s stinky little brother.”

Most importantly, remember to unwrap the cheese and allow it to come to room temperature; at least a half-hour in the warm months, one hour in the colder ones.

Pairing suggestions: Potter’s Winter Wheat Crackers
