Giveaway: Ticket to Birchrun Tasting


I have a thing for Red Cat, a bacony washed-rind made by Sue Miller. I want you to try it. That's why I am offering you, yes you, one free ticket to a Birchrun cheese (and beer) tasting this Friday at her farm in Chester Springs. It starts at 6:30 p.m. You'll have to wend your way there, along beautiful back roads. We'll pet some cows, watch the sun set over the milking barn, listen to cheesemakers and brewers talk shop, and then we'll feast. At least that's my plan.

If you'd like to be my guest, drop me a comment before 8 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, June 14, 2011. I'll roll the dice on my living room table and pick a winner. If you don't make the cut, you can still purchase a ticket. They cost $25 and should be reserved in advance. Here are the deets:

A Night at Birchrun Hills Farm,
2573 Horseshoe Trail, Chester Springs, PA 19425
Enjoy pairings of six local cheeses and beers at Birchrun Hills Farm in Chester County. Birchrun is home to Sue Miller, one of the area's premier raw-milk cheesemakers (Red Cat, Birchrun Blue).

Tickets are $25. To reserve a seat, email or call Sue Miller at 610-827-1603.

  1. I love you, Madame Fromage.

  2. The whole pack (!) of owner/brewers from Tired Hands Brewing Company will also be in attendance to pour two Saison-style beers (I'm thinking FarmHands- our four-grain Saison, and Nigel - our India Black Saison)and bend ears for the cheese/beer tasting. No need to roll the dice on us Madame!
