The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher’s signature cheese, was handcrafted just as Beecher’s Handmade Cheese opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in November of 2003. Flagship is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. 
Serving Suggestions:

  • Give Flagship a place of honor on an artisan cheese plate
  • Crumble Flagship into an omelet or frittata
  • Add Flagship to your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe
  • Outstanding on a cracker!

Pairing Suggestions:

  • Flagship pairs nicely with a Pouilly Fuisse or a Syrah
  • Flagship can also be enjoyed with an India Pale Ale or full-bodied brew.
