Peg walked into Cheeser's in Stoughton, WI on a Monday morning, expecting to be met by her standard cheese orders from the weekend. Much to her surprise, there was an order for 34 half pound blocks of brick cheese. Come to find out, the cheese had been featured in a recipe for Detroit Pizza on a popular food site. As of February 2018, 2,500 blocks of brick cheese have been sold and shipped. Visit the store today and see how far their cheese has traveled.
