Mosey on down to the Co-op Deli and you’ll discover a tantalizing array of organic, handmade ice creams. Each week, micro-batches of organic Co-op ice cream are made lovingly by staffer Matt. Now featured in the well: Lemon Curd!
Wake up your taste buds! Our delicious house made lemon curd — made with wholesome ingredients like free-range, organic eggs and organic lemon zest — is folded into a base of vanilla organic cream to create a bright and tangy frozen treat. Grab a scoop, a hand-packed pint, or try it as a milkshake!
Drink globally with a Black Boss Porter — a new addition to the Co-op’s beer selection. This unassuming 18.7 oz bottle holds a medley of alluring and rich flavors.
The first pour, a foamy tan head reveals the sweet scent of dried cherries and smoked oak wood. One sip and flavors of molasses and herby notes of black licorice and ginger spice abound in this hearty Baltic porter. Restrained hops make for a remarkably smooth drinking experience. Its high alcohol content is typical of Baltic porters, commonly brewed and consumed in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. A good candidate for cellaring, Black Boss Porter develops sherry-like notes as it ages. So get some for now and hold on to some for later!
Black Boss Porter is brewed in the Polish town of Witnica in the province of Lubusz, a place with a long brewing tradition due to the visitation of Cistercian monks in the 14th century. The current brewery was founded in 1848 and nationalized by the Polish communist state in the aftermath of World War II. In 1992, the brewery regained its independence and transitioned into an employee-owned company. Browar Witnica remains a small brewery, producing only about 60,000 barrels each year. It began exporting to Germany, Austria, Sweden, and USA in the last decade.
Enjoy Black Boss with a variety of meals, including: barbequed and grilled meats, rich chocolate-accented desserts and medium and strong flavored cheeses, such as Camembert and Raclette, available at the Co-op’s Specialty Cheese Island.

Welcome back two fine goat cheeses to the Co-op’s specialty Cheese Island: Garrotxa and Pimentino!
Garroxta is waiting for you…
Fans of rich, creamy goat’s milk cheeses will rejoice at the return of two exquisite Spanish gems. Garrotxa will lure the onlooker with its velvety, blue-gray mold, indigenous to its native Catalonia region. Its flavor is milky with a hint of sweetness and a semi-soft texture. Ideal for serving with Marcona almonds (available in the Deli To-Go case), olives and dried fruits. Pair with medium-bodied red wines, such as those made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (or Grenache) grape varietals.
Pimentino has an alluring bright orange rind coating of sweet paprika. Made exclusively from pasteurized goat’s milk from local family farms in Murcia, Spain. Pimentino has a creamy white interior paste and a clean flavor finish of sweet grass and wild herbs. The rind does not impart much flavor, but makes for a lovely presentation. Serve with Dalmatia Fig Orange spread, candied walnuts and a glass of bright, bubbly Cava wine.
Oskar Blues Brewery is kicking canned beer up a notch. With locations in Longmont, Colorado and Brevard, North Carolina, this brewery takes a serious interest in crafting excellent and authentic beer and food. Known for classics like Dale’s Pale Ale and Old Chub, Oskar Blues is on the cutting edge of making portable, canned microbrews.
Help us welcome a new, seasonal Oskar Blues brew to the Co-op’s Beer Aisle: Ten Fidy Imperial Stout. This mammoth stout busts out big flavors of caramel, chocolate, and roasted coffee beans. Loaded with 98 IBUs and a heady 10.5% ABV, Ten Fidy benefits from enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats, and hops that have to be hand-loaded into the mash tun. A truly boundary-stretching brew, pair it with a chocolate-rich dessert like chocolate truffles or brownies.
Beginning in 2002, Oskar Blues offered America’s first craft-canned mountain pale ale: Dale’s Pale Ale. This classic, hand-canned pale ale is a voluminously hopped brew with balanced, yet assertive flavors of pale malts and piney floral hops. With 6.5% ABV and 65 IBUs, this brew is a solid session drinker and pairs nicely with spicy finger foods and classic pub grub like burgers, fries, and nachos.
Another fabulously tasty offering from Oskar Blues is their Old Chub
, a Scottish strong ale (8% ABV) brewed with bodacious amounts of malted barley and specialty grains, along with a dash of beechwood-smoked malt. A smooth sipper, Old Chub features semi-sweet flavors of cocoa and coffee, and a hint of smoke. It meets its match when paired with the Co-op’s Own Handmade Sausage or wild caught seafood from our Meat Department. Or use Old Chub to make a memorable beer and cheese soup or chili.
