We won’t get too cheesy about it, but a San Luis Obispo County creamery is gaining international attention thanks to a BuzzFeed video about the California Cheese Trail.

The video, part of a series called Bring Me that showcases places people should visit, shows two BuzzFeed staffers taking a drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco to sample five California creameries. Their first stop? Stepladder Creamery in Cambria, where they sample goat milk cheese washed in beer and play with some of the adorable goats that live on-site.

By Tuesday afternoon, the video had been viewed more than 12 million times and shared 61,508 times on Facebook. Commenters, some of whom poo-pooed the idea of finding quality cheese outside of Europe, also made plans to take the drive up the coast to try some of the cheesy goodness.
