The Sweet Grass Dairy Cheese Shop will also have a Stone Brewing-centric menu featuring specific items tailored to highlight, contrast, and hone in on the brewery’s aggressive style.

Black Swan, Sweet Grass Dairy’s only beer-washed cheese, was originally washed in Arrogant Bastard Ale as a gift for one of Owners Jeremy and Jessica Little’s’ best friends’ weddings. Since its inception, Black Swan has developed a large following and recently the Littles began experimenting with different beer washes. This time, they promise a new twist on a fan favorite.
“When we found out that Stone was on board to come to South Georgia, we knew we wanted to create a new take on the original cheese,” said the Littles. “Stone does such a great job of taking simple ingredients, adding its touch, and creating an amazing beer. We wanted to honor that by doing the same with cheese. The result is truly special.”
