Fun Foodie Facts:

  • Nearly half of the drafts come from local, Chicago breweries.
  • We know Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet eating her curds and whey, but what are curds exactly?
    • To make cheese, milk is pasteurized and cooked until the whey separates from the curd. Then the curd is put into a mold and pressed to create a wheel or block of cheese.
    • Any curd that doesn’t make it into the mold are “cheese curds,” the by-product of cheese making, and are a snack unto themselves.
  • Wisconsin is the leading producer of cheese in the United States, with much of Wisconsin’s cheese made at small, family-owned and operated cheese factories.
  • Cheese making began in Wisconsin around 1840, when word of Wisconsin’s rich farmland spread throughout Europe and the United States.
  • By 1922, there were more than 2,800 cheese factories in the state. Wisconsin produces over 2 billion pounds of cheese per year, and it’s cheese is considered among the best in the world.
