Cheesemonster will be participating in the annual Uptown Mainstreets Taste of Uptown, this year in our own space! We will be serving up some free seasonal cheesy bites for all guests at the Studio. Cheeseboards, wine and beer will also be available for purchase. Come hang out with us in our Studio cafe all evening! We look forward to seeing (and meeting) all our friends and neighbors for the event!
With over 500 different grapes grown in its rich soils, Italian wines can be both exciting to taste and intimidating to understand. Join Cheesemonster for an evening of exploration through 5 major Italian wine regions: Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto and Sicily. We will taste through the spectrum of Italian gems, from sparkling to whites and reds. The wines are the stars for this event, but our cheesemongers will not disappoint with cheeses to accompany the tasting.
Ticket price includes 5 tastes of Italian wine and light cheesy bites. This is a 21+ event. Tickets available here.
Do you love cheese? Like really, really love cheese? Give in to your cheesy desires and join us for Cheese Club! Every quarter, we'll be highlighting a different cheese and celebrating its awesomeness. We'll nosh, we'll drink, we'll learn, and generally have a grand ol' time.
Here at Cheesemonster, we love supporting local, regional businesses... especially when those businesses happen to make ridiculously delicious cheese! Twenty Paces out of Charlottesville, VA does just that - their sheep and goat dairy/cheesemaking operation makes some of the region's most fantastic cheeses. Join us for an afternoon of learning, tasting, and fun!
We have two different tickets available:
- General Cheese Club Ticket includes: a tasting portion of the highlighted cheeses and paired accompaniments, two tasting portions of paired wines and/or beers (additional beverages may be purchased during the class).
- Premium Cheese Club Ticket includes: all of the above, plus a quarter pound of the highlighted cheese to take home!
Cheesemonster is thrilled to partner with The Bruery for a fall "Boos and Brews" beer and cheese pairing class. The Bruery experts will lead us through a flavor filled lineup of 5 seasonal beers and Cheesemonster mongers will be pairing them with our favorite rich, savorty and fall appropriate cheeses. We'll learn about how cheese and beer is made as well as all the things that make them pair so perfectly together!

We're very excited to announce our second blind tasting class at Cheesemonster Studio.

Cheeseboards and charcuterie will be available for additional purchase. This is a 21+ event.
