Krebs, Oklahoma has a lot to offer, but we’re interested in two things in particular. Beer and cheese. When you put these two together, magical things happen.
With that being said, we are excited to announce a limited edition release brought to you from the mad geniuses behind Lovera’s award-winning cheeses and Prairie Artisan Ales. They took their Toma style cheese, a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, and packed it full of the wonderment that is Bomb! Get ready to meet The Bomb! Toma. A lot of thought went into how to get their Toma cheese packed with that signature Bomb! flavor. Our spices were incorporated into the cheese itself, then the cheese wheels took a soak in Bomb! You’ll find our coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla bean, and chili peppers marbled throughout, with a wash of Bomb! on the rind. This is one heavy duty and delicious cheese! There’s something about the combination of the creamy Toma cheese with the distinctive flavors of Bomb!
You’ll be good to go if you just stop at getting some of this amazing cheese. It can hold its own on a plate, no doubt about that. But, if you’re looking to go up one level and invite a few friends over to show them your wonderful cheese find, we have a tip to really make them think twice about mocking your cheese and beer pairing abilities. While you’re out getting the fancy toothpicks to put in your Bomb! Toma, pick up some Prairie Standard. Really. We did tests. Grueling, scientific study, in a room full of our peers kind of tests. Ok, we drank and ate cheese, but we talked about important things like notes and our palates. And Prairie Standard with The Bomb! Toma was the winning combination of the crowd. We found other combinations that worked as well, but the balance of the slightly hoppy farmhouse ale with the Bomb! spice of the cheese created a perfect balance of taste bud push and pull.
Bonus: Pick up Lovera’s Black Hat Toma and pair with Prairie Ale. Use it to sway important decisions in your favor, in matters of delicate romantic parlance, or just for a good time. The Black Hat Toma, a fantastic goat cheese, is the perfect companion for Prairie Ale.
