This week on Wisconsin Foodie, we return to Door County. As any Wisconsinite will proudly tell you, beer and cheese runs in our veins, and Door County is no exception. Jesse and Rachel Johnson opened Door County Creamery in June 2013 and have been changing the public’s perception of what goat cheese can do. We hang out with the Johnsons and their kids (pun intended) on their goat farm just a few miles from the creamery. They show us how they milk their goats and deal with the controlled chaos that is running a goat farm.

Now that we have our goat milk, we head over to the creamery. Jesse shows Kyle how he makes their signature cheese, Falltum. After helping scooping the curd and hanging the bags, Jesse takes us into his cheese cave to see the aging cheeses he’s working on. Having worked up an appetite, Kyle and Jesse go to sit down in the creamery’s shop and try a variety of their amazing goat cheeses. But first, they try some of Door County Creamery’s goat gelato, breaking the rule of having dessert before a meal. We won’t tell their moms if you don’t.

After all this cheesemaking, it’s time to unwind with some local beers. Door County Brewery was opened by Jon McMahon and his sons, Danny and Ben. All of their beers are made with local ingredients and proudly tell stories of Door County with each product they release. Door County Brewery may be fairly new to the scene, but it is already making waves all over the state.
