First made by John Jossi around 1877, Brick is a Wisconsin original. Cured with a special smear, German Brick is tangy and pungent with a full, earthy flavor. This cheese is a step away from Limburger. Enjoy a slab of this Wisconsin German brick between pumpernickel, a thick onion slice and a little mustard, or in your favorite robust recipe. Not for the sensitive palette, but perfect for the hearty customer! ****Caution - This product is extremely pungent, as in stinky. Please do not purchase if you are not familiar with this type of cheese****

Brick Cheese
By Carol Spooner

I wish I would have read that it was like Limburger. I opened the box and the smell was so bad. The cheese was brown on the outside and puffed up. I bought it for a gift and there was no way I was going to give this to my daughter. She loves brick cheese and we can't find it in our area so as a special treat for her, I ordered it. I did put it in the refrigerator and it smelled my refrigerator up. I threw it out. There must be a difference between brick cheese and brick german cheese because the brick cheese we bought in amish country definitely was not what I bought from you.
