The local Brew store sells supplies for beer, wine and cheese making. They also sell craft beer by the bottle, and they have a growler store. In case you don't know, a growler store is where they have a bunch of craft beer on tap, and you buy a glass jug called a growler, and you have it filled with whatever beer you want. Then you can just bring the jug back and get it refilled.
The local merchants around the brew store are having what they call a Brewfest. The restaurants and other businesses in the area are going to set up some tents in the parking lot and charge admission and advertise their stuff. There will be food samples from restaurants and various beers. The businesses are going to give out coupons. I think the Mexican restaurant is doing a coupon for a $2 margarita to try their restaurant.
The store asked if I will set out a table for their cheese supplies and classes. I teach classes there for cheddar and Swiss, and they have a mozzarella class. I would like to promote classes and encourage new cheese makers.
Any ideas for what I can do? I don't think that a demonstration would be good, people will be wandering by, not staying long enough to do a demonstration. I thought about making cheese curds the day before and having them for samples. I could do regular cheddar curds and I could do some with jalopeno's as well. We will sit out all of the supplies that they store sells of course, and my husband is going to have a cheese press on display.
I just feel like there has to be something else to draw some attention. Does anybody have any ideas? Is there any quick cheese that I could make that would spark interest in cheese making? The festival is June 15th.
