Swiss brands?

If this has been discussed before, then I apologize for not being able to find the discussion.

I'm looking for recommendations for brands of Swiss cheese that I can find in the Sacramento/Placer County area.

Thanks for any pointers.

  1. Don't know if you can find it in the Sacramento area, but I loved this Spring Ramp cheese I found at Farmstead in Oakland (Montclair neighborhood, right off Hwy 13).

    A name that you want to watch for is Rolf Beeler. Ask at your cheese merchant. Here's more about his cheeses.

    Perhaps in part due to Beeler's success, I have been seeing more Swiss cheeses in local shops. Here's an earlier post about some other types I tried in Switzerland that might be available here, if not now, some day.

    1. Have you had a chance to shop the Nugget markets? I would think that the cheese departments will have cave aged Gruyere.

      Edited to add: And I've found the Gruyere featured on its site.
