American Cheese Society

American Cheese Society


Each October, the American Cheese Society (ACS) organizes American Cheese Month—a nationwide celebration of America’s delicious and diverse cheeses, and the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers and chefs who bring them to your table.

Learn more about ACS and American Cheese Month, and sample cheeses from American artisan producers, at the ACS tasting area at GABF.


Find these delicious cheeses near the karaoke stage, located at the back of the festival hall.
