Beer cheese is a type of cheese that originated in Germany, but is now known worldwide. Produced in America, mostly in Wisconsin, it is a pungent and salted cheese. Beer cheese ripens for seven months in highly humid conditions. It is related to Limburger cheese. Connoisseurs of this delicacy often take it with beer (sometimes dipping the cheese directly in their drinks), hence the name. Most people don't realize that beer and cheese have more in common than wine and cheese. Beer cheese is also good served on small slices of rye or pumpernickle bread. It is a common item on pub and restaurant menus in the Czech Republic, the country with the highest per-capita beer consumption in the world. Beer Cheese is also known as Bierkaese or Weisslacker. In addition, beer cheese is a common ingredient in various breads, soups, and dips. ...more on Wikipedia about "Beer cheese"

Tilsit cheese is a semi-hard light yellow cheese. Tilsit was created in the mid- 19th century by Dutch settlers in Prussia, who set out to make Gouda cheese.

The settlers named the cheese after Tilsit, the Prussian town they had settled in. ...more on Wikipedia about "Tilsit cheese"
