Great American Cheese Collection

Doser: Great American Cheese Collection

Founder: Giles Schnierle

Products: Artisan American-made cheese from across the country, plus cheese accoutrement like jam, fruit sausage and more.

Why we love them: Their Back Of The Yards warehouse is only open to the public on Saturdays; the rest of the week, they’re providing the country’s finest cheese directly to restaurants and shops. And the employees know their affinage: one is a certified Master Fromager, another a former brewer, another a wine pro.
