Vac Pack Whole Mild Specialty Brick 5 lb Heritage: In a state known for its cheese, Joe Widmer is a proud cheesehead. He's heir to the Widmer cheese throne, the third generation in his family in the business. Joe Widmer is one of only eight certified Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers. What that means is that Widmer cheeses are made the same, careful, painstaking way they have been for generations. Widmers' is the only factory left in the state of Wisconsin that still follows the authentic procedures of manufacturing Brick Cheese. In fact, the Widmers' still use the bricks that Grandfather John O. Widmer used in 1912 to press their cheese. A staggering 10 pounds of milk goes into each one pound of cheese. That adds up to make this the best brick cheese made in the U.S.A. Description: A Wisconsin original. Flavor changes from mild and sweet. Mild Brick Cheese is a young cheese that is mild and buttery sweet. Slice for sandwiches; shred for casseroles

I'm very happy with the cheese. As a former Wisconsinite, it was always a favorite and I cannot get out west. I was a bit disappointed in the delivery however. I paid a lot for shipping in a refrigerated container, however, it arrived warm. There wasn't one bit of "cool or cold" in the Styrofoam container and the ice packages were warm liquid.
Glad you liked the cheese Barbara, however in the warm weather you will see that you should send the cheese other than ground but I am glad it made it safely and if possible it is always good to stock up before the warm weather comes. Thank you!

We lived in CA for three decades, where CA cheese was marketed like mad. Now living in suburban Chicago we are thrilled to have found Widmer's Brick Cheese. We wish we could drive to WI when we run low, but ordering it online is easy, effective, and keeps the family cheese lovers happy.

Usually I order pizza to be shipped by Detroit Style Pizza Company to south Florida. I asked Shawn, the owner, what cheese they use - brick cheese. This last time I ordered my 12 pizzas from Buddy's - the originator of Detroit style pizza, wanting to try something different. Their pizza is very bland compared to Shawn's - no cheese flavor. I tried ordering a small brick of Brick Cheese from Widmer's to see if I could duplicate the flavor of really good Detroit pizza. Sprinkled the grated brick on top of the Buddy's pizza - heated it up @ 450 F. Melted and started to caramelize properly in the steel auto parts pan that is used to cook Detroit pizza. The brick cheese helped tremendously and the flavor is there. I'll be re-ordering.

Widmer's Cheese is simply the best, that's why after over 20 years we are still ordering.

The Brick is our favorite cheese from Widmers. by far though the Colby is a close second. The flavor and tetture of the Brick makes us want to eat a whole pound pack at one sitting. OUTSTANDING!
