Michigan Cheese & Dairy Guild Happy Hour

Friday, March 15, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


This event will take place IN PERSON at Zingerman’s Greyline!

For over two decades now, a burgeoning, but loosely-bound cheesemaking community has been bubbling underground here in Michigan. We’re excited to introduce you to the Michigan Cheese and Dairy Guild, a diverse group of cheese makers, farmers, retailers, restaurateurs, foodies, and enthusiasts with a mission to promote the prosperity of the Michigan food and tourism industry, with a special focus on supporting the local artisan cheese and dairy economy. 

We love talking to you about cheese from our cheese counter and special events and we’re thrilled to invite you to join us at this happy hour to meet the founding members of the Guild, sample some of their finest creations, and sip on some delicious wine pairings carefully selected for each cheese. 

You’ll get to enjoy our Zingerman’s Deli take on a favorite Detroit’s Monger Provisions grilled cheese offering: Leelanau Raclette, Zingerman’s Deli Sea Salt Chips, Cornichon, and Zingerman’s Bakehouse Farm Bread. Try one of Zingerman’s Catering’s most beloved apps with a new twist – bacon wrapped dates stuffed with Zingerman’s Creamery cheese. In addition to the wine pairings that come with your ticket, there will also be a cash bar for additional drinks! Bring a friend (a Lactaid, if you need it) and socialize and nosh with us at Zingerman’s Greyline. 

A portion of your ticket price will be donated to the Guild to support their work — big wins all around!
