With hundreds of events, enough beer to cover the City, and plenty of cheese to go around, Philly Beer Week deserves some love. Our cheesemongers put together six beer and cheese pairings that will light up your week as an Ode to Philly […]

I am compelled to begin this post with an apology. To all the customers who have sought my Stilton pairing advice in the past: I am sorry that I steered so many of you directly to Port Wine. Don’t get me wrong, Port and Stilton is a classic pairing and certainly works, but lately I have […]
Is there a better time of year for foodies than the onset of Fall? Apples, Brussel sprouts, pumpkins and squash are coming into season.

May 31st kicks off 2013 Philly Beer Week, and boy are we excited! We have lots of events in store showcasing some of the best of our cheese selections to pair with craft and local beers. We’ve partnered with restaurants, breweries and food writers to offer a wide variety of events – from educational clases, to sampling events to thoughtful paired dinners and even an exclusive After Hours event at 9th Street on June 6th!
A couple recipes from the evening will be in your hands soon – the Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese book comes out in just three weeks! Until then, you’ll have to wing it as you crack open your first Hopfish, your first Exit 16 (made with wild rice, and just glorious!). As I read through my hasty tasting notes, a few favorites jumped out. I am writing them here for you – but also to commit them to memory myself, as a summer mantra.
March brings the Flower Show to Philadelphia, and with this year’s “British Landscapes” it seems only proper to offer you a selection of Britain’s best wedges.

(Di Bruno Bros. will be a vendor at the show, but the flagship store at 18th and Chestnut is within walking distance.)
It’s not often that you get a farmer, a brewer, a chef, and a cheesemonger to join together for dinner. The farmer has her animals to milk in the evenings. The brewer has beers to pour. The chef usually stays in the kitchen, and the cheesemonger…well, you know where he’d rather be. In the cave, of course.
