Soft Cheeses & Bubbles: A BYOB Class @ The Cheese House
Oct 4 @ 6:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Brie fans rejoice! Join us as we dive deep into soft-ripened and bloomy rind soft cheeses (like brie and camembert) and why they pair so beautifully with bubbles! We will be featuring 7 cheeses from various milk types and makers across the globe. We will have bubbles for pairing available for purchase in the retail shop. The tasting will be accompanied by olives, nuts, and Easy Tiger bread. We’ll also bring out a number of additional pairings like chutneys and charcuterie bites, depending on that evening’s cheese selection. Note: Doors open at 6:15pm and the event starts at 6:30pm. You may choose to arrive early and separately purchase our wine or beer pairings from the Cheese Shop prior to the class the day of the event. Should you choose to bring your own bubbles, there is a $4 set-up fee. As the tasting wraps up around 8pm, we’ll give you and your guests time to mingle and enjoy the Cheese House, while we cut-to-order any cheese from the class that you’d like to purchase so you can re-create the tasting at home. Personal delivery of cheese directly to your chair. Does it get any better than that? A couple RSVP reminders: Each class is $45 plus fees. Once you click to purchase tickets, you will only have 5 minutes to complete your order. To pay with a gift card, call our events department at 512-531-9610 ext. 3 with your card number and pin number. Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable to other dates. You will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite (Note: Help us go green! Only print this email if absolutely necessary). We allow individuals to purchase up to 4 seats; please note we can only guarantee seating for parties of 4 or less. (If your party is larger, contact us for information on private parties and tastings!) If you’re unable to purchase one or more tickets, that means they are sold out. Please sign up for our waitlist (once per person); we are often able to accommodate guests off this list. Lastly, remember that you can come into the Cheese Shop anytime and taste cheese for free. Our cheesemongers are here to guide you through the case and answer any questions.  For more information please visit our website.
