Finding brick cheese in the Bay Area?


Does anyone know of a location for buying brick cheese in the Bay Area? I’m from Wisconsin originally ... I might have to ask family to ship me some.

Also, what type of brick cheese (mild, sharp, etc.) do people prefer with their detroit-style pizzas?

Thanks!

I am not from the Bay Area, as such I would have no idea who would have Brick Cheese. However, I decided to order from Wisconsin. Widmer's Cheese is who I eventually went with because they also sold white cheddar, which is also another key ingredient for Detroit style pizza. I got a block of brick and a clock of Aged White Cheddar - 6 Years. The aged white cheddar ranked among the best Aged White Cheddar I have ever eaten, I highly recommend it and will be purchasing it again someday. I believe they have mild brick cheese, the brick cheese I ordered was just the normal one, if that is called sharp I do not know. At first, the smell was strong and the taste pungent, but after one or two pizzas it was just normal right. Widmer's recommends going with the mild if you want a less pungent smell.

I've been ordering Brick Cheese online for a while to make my own Detroit style pizza after being unable to find it anywhere in the Bay Area. Imagine my surprise when I came across a post from the man with a shop just down the hill from me taking the time to fill a custom Brick order!

I walked by the new store you're setting up on Union the other day. If you end up selling some refrigerated goods from there whenever it opens, I'd be ecstatic if the shop carried some Brick!
