What goes better with hand-crafted beer and wine from a small state like Delaware than quality cheeses made from a farm family dairy cooperative in another small state - Vermont?

Cabot Creamery Cooperative, in continuous operation in Vermont since 1919, has been named the official cheese sponsor - for the second consecutive year - of the Third Annual Delaware Wine & Beer Festival, set for noon to 5 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 21, at Delaware Agricultural Museum & Village, Dover.

Cabot makes a full line of award-winning cheeses, yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese and butter. With more than 50 prestigious awards to its credit including every major award for taste, Cabot Clothbound Cheddar was most recently named best in class at the World Championship Cheese Contest.

As a cooperative, Cabot is owned and operated by its farm family members. Similarly, Delaware's wineries and breweries are mostly family-run or small businesses that take pride in creating award-winning wines and beers.

"We are pleased to sponsor and participate in Delaware's Wine & Beer Festival, where we can introduce our cheeses to those who appreciate natural products made with the highest-quality ingredients and who want to support farm families," said Cabot's Regional Market Manager Karen Houchens.

Participating wineries, breweries and distillery include: 16 Mile Brewing Company, Georgetown; Argilla Brewing Company, Newark; Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Milton; Fenwick Wine Cellars, Fenwick Island; Fordham/Dominion Brewing Company, Dover; Great Shoals Winery, Princess Anne, Md., (featuring T.S. Smith’s Black Twig Hard Apple, Bridgeville); Harvest Ridge Winery, Marydel; Legacy Distilling, Smyrna; Nassau Valley Vineyards, Lewes; Pizzadili Vineyard & Winery, Felton; Twin Lakes Brewery, Greenville; Unplugged & Uncorked Sonata Wines, Millsboro; and Yards Brewing Company, Philadelphia.
