Brick Cheese, Mild
Mild Brick is sweet and slightly nutty. The dry rind gives it the mild flavor. The mild brick is a creamy yellow color.
Mild Brick is used in soups, sauces, casseroles and whole-grains. It pairs well with light red wine and beer.
Brick is originally from Wisconsin. Brick was named after its shape and for the fact the cheesemakers originally used bricks to press the moisture from the cheese. The bacteria known as a smear that is applied to surface-ripen the cheese develops the full, earthy flavor of the cheese.
