Brick Cheese - Whole Form
Founded in 1885 by five dairy farmers, Chalet Cheese Cooperative continues to flourish as a cooperative, owned and operated by its 29 members. They specialize in the making of Limburger, Brick and Baby Swiss, with an emphasis on top quality and true workmanship. They are the only producers of Limburger in the United States, and their German Brick with a Limburger smear underscores their spirit for innovation.

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.

  • Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
