Just in time for National Cheese Day on June 4th, an Iowa cheese shop has been recognized as one of the best in the Midwest by Midwest Living!

Midwest Living's list of the best cheese shops in the Midwest was curated by Erika Kubick, the author of Cheese Sex Death: A Bible for the Cheese Obsessed. Out of the ten shops listed, one of them is here in the state of Iowa. That's The Cheese Shop of Des Moines!

The Cheese Shop of Des Moines is located at 833 42nd Street and is owned by C.J. and Kari Bienert. The official website says that they proudly offer "over 100 artisan and farmhouse cheeses, craft beer and wine, cured meats, a limited food menu, plus events and workshops in a cozy atmosphere."
