If there's one thing we've learned in this industry, it is this: Never pass up the opportunity to learn more about cheese. Luke Buholzer of Klondike Cheese Co. recently shared a deep dive on the brand's line of semi-soft cheeses, and the insights revealed were highly valuable.
“One of the items that we’re showcasing is our Buholzer Brothers® line of semi-soft cheeses, which includes Muenster, Brick, Havarti, and Gouda,” Luke, Vice President of Sales, relayed. “All of our semi-soft cheeses are crafted by master cheesemakers. They’re made in a facility that we built four years ago.”
The factory is state-of-the-art, and the cheeses are exceptional. As Luke explained, the semi-soft cheeses are all made in a traditional brined fashion. One of which is the cheesemaker’s specialty: Brick cheese
“We’ve been able to blend the latest in cheese-making technology with all of our traditions of making cheese for four generations. Brick cheese is a Wisconsin original,” continued Luke. “It’s a mild, very creamy, very versatile cheese. It melts really well.”
Now, you may be asking yourself, “Why is it called Brick?” Well, you’re not alone with that query, and we were eager to find out.
“The [cheesemakers] would actually take architecture bricks to put on the loaves and press the whey out,” Luke explained.
