Cheesemonster Studio, led by DC bar veterans Brian and Hilarey Leonard, has just landed in Brightwood Park’s up and coming neighborhood. This cheese and wine focused concept offers a private event space as well as drop-in tastings from Thursday-Saturday. Guests have the opportunity to attend classes, curated by cheesemonger Alice Bergen Philips, like Cheese 101 or cheese-and-beverage pairing classes while enjoying the cozy atmosphere. The menu consists of three cheese options: one for $5, three for $18, or five for $26. Aside from wine, Cheesemonster Studio also offers some hard cider options.
