The Brewster House - Club Cheese Spread from Wisconsin
There's a whole world of cheese spreads (cold pack or Club Cheese or Crock Cheese) that I've been introduced to with our trips to Twin Lakes in Wisconsin. The breadth of the offerings in the Club Cheese category at the grocery store is simply amazing in Wisconsin. I feel like I just woke up. The latest is this stuff from Shullsburg Creamery. Shullsburg makes tons of cheeses, but they also have a strong entry in the Club Cheese category.
Called "The Brewster House Old Fashioned Spreadable Cheese", this isn't topping the King of Clubs from Mars. Nope. But this is different. More like cream cheese than anything else. It is smoother, easier to spread that Merkt's or King of Clubs. But is super tasty. Won't hold up to all of the applications, but works really well on things like pretzels. With King of Clubs or Merkt's, when you take it out of the fridge and try to spread it, you end up breaking your various chips and pitas and what-have-yous.
This stuff? Spreads like silk. Even right out of the fridge.
To me, Club Cheese is like pizza. There are really great pizzas. Then there are just about every other pizza. They're mostly all good. Same with Club Cheese. There's the King of Clubs. Then everyone else. This one will do for most use cases. Wouldn't put it on a burger. But would scarf it down at a party any day of the week.
