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

Grew up in Wisconsin, now live in Denver, Widmers has always proved to be one of the best. The brick cheese is something I grew up on, and the flavor is unbeatable. For sandwiches, tacos, dips, a snack with crackers, it goes with just about anything. Will definitely order more to be shipped out to Colorado!

My wife and I are both originally from Wisconsin, but we haven't lived there for more than 40 years. When I was a kid, my father used to periodically stop in Theresa for the express purpose of buying an entire case of the Widmer mild brick cheese, which was divided up among grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. After no longer being able to find it here in central Texas, we finally decided to order some online directly from the factory's web site. I must say that it tastes exactly as I remember it, mildly smooth and buttery, the best there is. No place but Wisconsin!

I grew up in Wis. about 5 miles from the Widmer factory. Have loved this brick cheese for 50 yrs. It tastes as good today as it always has.

We look forward to this time of year. This is because were able to order the Brick Cheese. I know we can get in the summer but it has to stay cold. So the cost of shipping in the summer puts out of range.
As the cheese ages the taste gets better everyday. You will not be disappointed ordering this cheese. I would bet you order another right after finishing the first one....
