Introducing the Welsh Rabbit Cheese Shop

Foodies—check out the latest boutique specialty food shop to open in Downtown Fort Collins! Welsh Rabbit Cheese Shop is stocking its shelves with artisan cheeses, crackers, dried meats, olives and more.

Located on Pine Street, just around the corner from Rasta Pasta, Welsh Rabbit Cheese Shop is open and ready to help you pair interesting cheeses with beer or wine. Enjoy eating al fresco this spring and summer—grab some picnic supplies from the Cheese Shop and enjoy the great outdoors with quality products.

Fort Collins is known for its variety of restaurants, pubs, beer tasting rooms and very recently for its delicious sampling of spice shops, olive oil shop, tea shop and now cheese shop. This is not “fast food”—artisan cheeses and dried meats take time, many of the products are handmade, using the highest quality ingredients. Stocking local, national and international products, the retail shop is a huge supporter of local food initiatives, the food incubator and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).

Owned and operated by Colorado State University alums, Dean Hines, wife Nancy and brother Nate Hines, this local trio fell in love with the idea of opening a cheese shop after traveling and working in other cities. For a taste of Europe, and finer food offerings, head to Welsh Rabbit.
