Sunday, January 20 is National Cheese Lover's Day, and while it might be cheesy to have a day devoted to loving a certain type of food, the celebration part is definitely something many of us can get behind.

Whether you prefer your cheese plain, or as part of a charcuterie plate, here are three places in Fort Collins where you can pick out cheese so good it'll make you want to melt.

The Welsh Rabbit

Part cheese shop, part cheese bistro, The Welsh Rabbit is owned by a Fort Collins family who truly knows their stuff when it comes to what they sell. They'll let you sample before buying in shop, and the bistro is an intimate spot to stop for some wine and cheese.

The Fox and Crow

With three Certified Cheese Professionals on staff, it's safe to say you're in good hands when picking out cheese from The Fox and Crow. Whether you're staying for happy hour or taking your cheese to go, you'll get high-quality cuts that are both unique and flavorful.

Emporium Kitchen and Wine Market

The Elizabeth Hotel is home to several bars, delicious restaurant, and a well-stocked kitchen and wine market that showcases a selection of different cheeses and house-made charcuterie boards. If they have it available, the coconut Gouda is definitely one to try.

Happy National Cheese Lover's Day!
