Weisslacker aka Beer cheese is a type of cows' milk cheese that originated in Germany, but is now known worldwide. It is a pungent, salted and matures for 7 months in highly humid conditions. It is a relative of Limburger cheese.
Weisslacker is often consumed with beer (sometimes dipping the cheese directly into the drink), hence the name. Many find it too overpowering to serve with wine. This cheese is also served on small slices of rye or pumpernickel bread often with some sliced onion. It is a common item on bar and restaurant menus in the Czech Republic.
Weisslacker is also known as bierkäse, bierkaese, beer kaese and beer cheese. In addition, Weisslacker is a common ingredient in various breads, soups, and dips.
