I can buy Chimay cheese at a number of stores in Louisville...

Had this the other day, and Urquell did not complement it well:

I still have about half the chunk left; any pairing recommendations?

A piece of Chimay cheese does not hold long in this household. Orval’s, true to style, is increasingly hard to get even in BE.

Does Chimay cheese travel to the US?


I have never seen Chimay cheese in a store, but it is easily available on-line. Orval Cheese is much harder to find.

During our last trip through WI/MI I really wanted to try more US local cheeses, but the prices even at the source in cheeseland WI seemed so much more prohibitive than I’m used to in BE/DE... Is local "craft" cheese seen as upper echelon luxury good?


Good cheese in America is not cheap, on a weight adjusted basis its one of the most expensive foods you can buy. Not sure if I’d call it upper echelon though. I think that most middle class people can, and do, work it into their grocery budget.

Since it’s an English pub cheese try it with a good fresh English bitter.

Hops with that would be weird. Buttery Chardonay seems like it would be nice, I could see southern french working as well.

If only I had one nearby... and now, my 18 month old daughter has finished the last of the Cotswold. Hrmph. The closest thing I have in my fridge is London Pride.

It’s the lowest common denominator shit tier harder cheese. It tastes nothing. There are awesome Swedish cheese makers, that is basically milk flavored plastic.
