Brick cheese is a Wisconsin original cheese. The color ranges from pale yellow to white, and flavors from mild to pungent. Brick cheese was originally produced in 1877 by John Jossi. The cheese making process of Wisconsin Brick cheese was derived from white American Cheddar, cultured at a slightly higher temperature, resulting in a slightly softer texture, higher fat content, and a slightly altered protein structure. The name is derived not only from its shape resembling a brick shape, but the cheese curds are pressed with clay-fired bricks. This particular Wisconsin brick cheese is mild, smooth, with a semi-soft texture and the addition of zesty garlic. Each block of Decatur Garlic Brick cheese is 8 ounces. Crafted by Decatur Dairy of Brodhead, Wisconsin.
