Wisconsin Cheese Masters will present the 5th Annual “STINKFEST” on Saturday, September 21 from 2–4pm. This outdoor event (our neighbors love it when the wind blows in their direction) will feature free samples of the very “aromatic” Wisconsin Limburger and Wisconsin Aged Brick.
Chef Jess will be sampling the “stinkies” and grilling Limburger and Aged Wisconsin Brick sandwiches on Rye with onions. She may also add a few new ways to enjoy these incredible edibles. Samples are always FREE at Wisconsin Cheese Masters.
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 Jim Pionkoski, Wisconsin Cheese Masters owner.
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.
