Beer made from Stilton cheese
British cheese-makers have announced they are to release a beer made from Stilton cheese. No, we're not convinced either.
The unusual brew is said to capture the distinctive flavour of creamy and salty blue cheese and is made by combining stilton whey with beer wort.
This produces a 4.2 percent real ale "The Blue Brew" which drinkers will be glad to know is a traditional chestnut-coloured ale rather than a blue concoction.
Bosses from the Stilton Cheesemakers Association and Belvoir Brewery say it took several attempts to get the drink right but they are convinced drinkers will like the taste.
Would you try a cheese beer, what cheese would you like to see turned into a beer? Let us know in the comments. We're off for a pint of Cheddar Artois.
One drinker who tasted the Blue Brew said: "You can really taste the cheese.
"It's not overpowering or too strong a taste, but there's a definite hint of Stilton in there."
