Egg Harbor, Wis. (September 15, 2020) – Wisconsin Cheese Masters will present the Sixth Annual “STINKFEST” on Saturday, September 19 from 2 until 4pm. This outdoor event will feature free samples of the very “aromatic” Wisconsin Limburger and Wisconsin Aged Brick and, they’ll be grilling Limburger and Aged Wisconsin Brick sandwiches on Rye with onions as is tradition. Samples are always FREE at Wisconsin Cheese Masters.
Jim Pionkoski, Wisconsin Cheese Masters owner says, “Stinkfest is the perfect social distancing event. As always, it will be held outside and when you are eating Limburger, no one wants to be within 6 feet of you!”
Souvenir hats will also be available again this year for purchase.
“Today, there is only one cheese maker in the U.S. venturing into the art of making Limburger, and, of course they are here in the Cheese State.” said Pionkoski.
Aged Brick, known as “The Married Man’s Limburger,” is one of only two types of cheeses invented in the New World – both were developed in Wisconsin. Brick cheese is so named because of the tradition of weighing down the loaves of cheese with bricks. The bricks used for the aged brick being sampled have been used by the cheese-making family for 4 generations.
Pionkoski added, “We don’t open and sample our Limburger and Aged Brick in our store because of their incredibly strong, some might say unpleasant, odor. Stinkfest is the only chance for fans of these cheeses, or for the simply curious, to taste “The Stinkies.”
Located on Highway 42 just south of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin Cheese Masters features all-Wisconsin artisanal, farmstead and master made cheeses. Wisconsin Cheese Masters is family locally owned and operated.
