East Midlands Brewery brew Stilton Beer

An East Midlands Brewery, the Belvoir Brewery in Leicestershire, has teamed with the Stilton Cheesemakers Association to produce a beer using the whey from the cheese making process.

Whey is added to the wort and fermented, resulting in a chestnut colored beer that has a smooth, rounded flavor and a creamy mouthfeel. The beer is called Blue Brew.

Stilton cheese is only made in Leicestershire, Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire, and is something of a Christmas tradition in England.  The Cheesemakers association has also promoted the Stilton whey for use in perfumes and in a milk shake.
