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

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

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.

NONE Finer , we’ve been buying for more years than I can count , a MUST try for everyone .
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.

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!

This particular line of Widmer’s is my favorite! The flavor is so full yet so mild that it goes with almost everything! Love it!

My favorite cheese Hands down of the Widmers cheeses. All of their cheeses are great but the brick is my Favorite
I moved away from Wisconsin some 30 odd years ago. I have not had brick cheese since moving away. Recently visited Wisconsin for a few days and got to try some of your cheese while I was there. I just had to order some for the whole family to try. Your Brick was just as I remembered brick cheese to be. I always loved it and now have turned my family on to it. I will be ordering this over and over again. Your fast prompt shipping and easy ordering makes for a grwat on line experience.
This is my favorite Widmer’s product and I have ordered it each holiday season for the past few years.
just what I remember brick should taste like
Some of the best cheese available. We buy from you often.
My Brother-in law brought some of this wonderful cheese down to Illinois when he came to visit for Christmas and we were hooked. I have since reordered and plan to again. Only problem I have is once I slice it-it disappears way too fast.
Have enjoyed your fine brick since I can remember as my parents bought it every year. Am now happy to stock up each winter for the year for my family as no stores in Eastern PA have your fine brick cheese.

We live upstate New York and wanted to make Detroit style pizza so we bought this cheese. It is fantastic and not just for the pizza. Great cheese and great service.
Your ‘yellow’ brick is the finest brick cheese produced anywhere. I’ve been enjoying it for years — having grown up in Wisc & having traveled all over.

I live in Arizona and have it shipped to me several times per year. The customer service is excellent. It is hot here, and they go out of the way to call you and make sure you get your cheese still cold and fresh.
This is my favorite cheese of all cheeses, and I order it annually.
My late mother made her Italian rice Torta’s with Brick cheese which was readily available in our grocery stores in upstate NY when I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s. For years now I have been searching for Brick cheese in NY and VT where I now live, but to no avail. I found this cheese online and was a bit hesitant as it is orange and our Brick cheese was always white. I purchased this cheese and it arrived quickly and packed perfectly in a cooler. The cheese worked perfectly in Mom’s recipe. It is a very creamy, mild cheese..very pleasant!
Thank you! I will definitely be ordering again!
I live in Il but travel to find this, or order online. Wonderful, delicate flavor.

My husband’s father used to make home made pizza when we are growing up. We moved to FL from Pennsylvania and was never able to find it. Now we buy it faithfully and my husband makes the same delicious pizza. Thank you all for everything, including the memories. God bless~
I have always bought Widmer’s Brick in the store. But, I cannot find it any more. So I went on line directly and also bought the Widmer’s Jalapeno Brick Cheese. Both are excellent.!! A Winner In My Book.!!!
