Best Local Cheeses 

Sacred Wheel Cheese Shop

You can buy cheese anywhere, from the aisles of the nearest supermarket to a bevy of specialty shops, scattered like crumbles of blue cheese from one end of the East Bay to the other. You can find it at farmers' markets, delis, and corner stores — and most of it may even be decent. But what if what you're looking for is locally produced artisanal cheeses to pair with your Northern California wines, urban-farmed fruits, and fresh-baked bread? In that case, you'll want to visit Temescal's Sacred Wheel Cheese Shop, where most of the cheeses were made on small California farms by purveyors like Cypress Grove Chevre, Central Coast Creamery, and Point Reyes Cheese Company. While you're there, pick up some locally made spreads and other accoutrements: Sacred Wheel stocks plenty. And provided you're the least bit hungry, don't leave before trying a grilled-cheese-and-tomato-soup combo; the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer mixed into the latter isn't local, but how far is Milwaukee, really?
