Konig Ludwig Beercheese

König Ludwig Beercheese is a delicate yellow, semi-hard cheese produced from daily-fresh hay-milk, with small holes and matured in fine König Ludwig dark beer which gives a hearty taste. It is named after the place where the cheese is kept during the ripening period, which is close to the royal castle of "Neuschwanstein". The castle used to be the favourite residence of King Ludwig II, King of Bavaria. All König Ludwig cheeses are ripened for a minimum period of three months.
