Merkts Partners With Wisconsin Craft Breweries for New Cheese Spreads

Fall '16 | Vol. 23, No. 1

Merkts® Beer Cheese Spread is a bold new line of spreadable Wisconsin cheeses proudly made with Wisconsin craft beer. The company has partnered with Capital Brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin, and Stevens Point Brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, to offer four flavorful varieties infused with light lagers, smooth ambers, hoppy IPAs and roasted malts. Merkts Beer Cheese Spread is offered in four cheddar varieties: Merkts Beer Cheese Spread with Capital Supper Club®, Merkts Beer Cheese Spread with Point Amber Classic, Merkts Beer Cheese Spread with Capital Mutiny IPA™ and Merkts Beer Cheese Spread with Point Onyx Black Ale. 

In the 1950s, George Merkt and his wife set up a small cheese and sausage shop near Salem, Wisconsin. In April 2002, the company joined forces with Bel Brands USA and continues to make fine Wisconsin cheddar cheeses in Little Chute, Wisconsin.
