Brick originated in Wisconsin, so it's naturally good. Not only does this cheese resemble a brick, but Wisconsin cheesemakers originally used bricks to press excess whey from the cheese, hence the name. Brick is a smooth-textured cheese that is ivory to creamy yellow in color, and comes in three varieties: mild, aged, and dry rind.
Changes from mild and sweet with a touch of nuttiness when young to pungent and tangy when aged.
GOES WELL WITH
Crackers, sweet pickles, and nuts.
Beaujolais, Bock, Chardonnay, Lager, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Porter, Sauvignon Blanc, and Stout.
