Brick is the oldest cheese type to have originated in the USA, first created in 1875 by John Jossi, a native of Switzerland living in Lebanon, Wisconsin. Myron Olson has been crafting cheese for over 30 years and is the manager of Chalet Cheese Cooperative where he makes this Wisconsin original. Flavor changes from mild and sweet, with a touch of nuttiness when young to pungent and tangy when aged. Brick is surface-ripened with a smooth, open texture. Slice for sandwiches; shred for casseroles.
