Denver, Colorado — Due to the pandemic, many people miss traditional date nights and happy times. But the Denver Cheese Shop was set up to bring you those opportunities.
You are in a good company this week with So Damn Gouda, who combines wine and other dishes into party trays.
“We want people to get great craftsmanship cheese,” says Mike Keuler, founder of So Damn Gouda.
Born into a family of dairy farmers in Wisconsin, Keuler found a niche market specializing in cheese. He opened So Damn Gouda nearly six years ago and moved to Denver’s Sunnyside district in 2018 to combine his rich cheeses with other fine foods to make a pork platter.
“I have a coffee nerd, I have a beer nerd, and I have a cheese nerd,” says Keuler. “As you know, I was able to actually try all the different cheeses before I bought them.”
Now you order the box online. You can build yourself or trust their expertise for a complete experience.
“Most people actually order what we curate,” Keuler said. “And that’s because we put those cheeses there — because they harmonize really well.”
That’s why Damn Gouda manufactures its own crostini, cheese balls and specialty fig jam in-house. They first procure free goods such as meat, bread and wine from Colorado, but also domestically and internationally.
“All our wines range from $ 15 to $ 25,” Keuler said. “So we try to keep it friendly, but we also really try to make wines that people aren’t very familiar with.”
He says the goal is to pull you away from the comfort zone and stimulate conversations about food.
“I love alpine cheese. Think about Gruyere and that type of cheese because it’s complicated,” says Keuler. “They are aged, so they have a lot of nuanced taste.”
But what they really want you to taste is a deep appreciation for their skills and your support. That way, they will soon be able to celebrate with you again.
