Cheese Champion, an evening of U.S. champion cheese tasting, will be held in the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay. This is the signature event of the 2019 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest. Open to 500 attendees, with all tickets sold in advance. You’ll enjoy beer sampling, samples of at least 50 cheeses, and a cash bar.
This event promises not only taste sensations, but also great anticipation, as the best cheese in the country will be named for the first time following the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, held March 5 & 6 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
Cheese Champion also features the expertise of contest judges, ready to guide attendees’ sampling experiences. Judges will offer cheese cutting and tasting tips, and discuss the art of grading the appearance, flavor, body, and texture of entries from the nation’s largest cheese competition.
