Maybe it's my Wisconsin upbringing again, but when it comes to aged Cheddar, I prefer beer.

You prefer beer to cheddar? Or beer to wine? (guessing that you mean you drink beer with your cheese, not wine). I had to give up all alcohol due to depression, 20 years ago. I'm a party pooper now....but still like to eat and feast and party.

Yes, I drink beer with cheddar cheese, but I drink wine with other cheeses.

I keep seeing that at Costco. I guess I'll have to pick up some.

I'm Danish. I prefer my cheese to get stinky as it ages over getting sharp.

Start with the 2 or 3 year old. Specially if you prefer stinky to sharp . If you start now, but Christmas you will be ready for the 6 year!

All this talk is making me feel there is a Costco trip in my very near future! I have cheese and crackers for my afternoon snack with my medications and I think it's time I treat myself!

So we went to one of those supermarkets that make their shtick on "fresh", "local", "organic" etc.

They had some cheddar there that was simply label with the aging 2, 3 or 4 years. I picked up a small block of 4 year old to give it a whirl. I like a good sharp cheddar.

Good call. Certain cheese certainly go better with Ale, than wine.
