GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The nation’s “big cheese” will be determined Wednesday night in Green Bay.
The U.S. Championship Cheese Contest began Tuesday in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
A record 1,700 cheeses were being judged in 82 categories – and the top ones in each group are advancing to this evening’s championship round.
John Umhoefer of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association says there’s an increase in spicy cheeses this year.
The competition is held every two years.
