Good Thunder

Good Thunder is a washed-rind cheese, bathed in Surly Brewing's Bender, an oatmeal brown ale. The cheese is washed weekly for 3 weeks, during which the Brevibacterium linens cultures give the cheese its orange rind and distinctive stinky aroma. It is further ripened and refrigerated for a couple more weeks before it is available in the market. The result is a fudgy, dense cheese that softens and becomes funkier, as it ages. Of course it pairs well with brown ales and ciders.
