The Midwest is dairy country so it's no wonder so many cheese makers call it home.
For cheese lovers hoping for an unadulterated tasting, try a Cheese Board, which showcases a variety of regional cheeses (some sourced straight from the cheese producer) accompanied by apples, nuts, cherries and crackers.
With 25% of America's cheese produced in Wisconsin, a trip to Galena isn't complete without a sampling of our neighbor state's specialty. But there's no need for travelers to road trip across the state line for a tasting. One Eleven Main on Galena's Main Street serves up four appetizers featuring a variety of Wisconsin cheeses. In addition to a Cheese Board, you can choose from rich and creamy Beer Cheddar Fondue (pale ale, Wisconsin cheese, veggies and bread); crispy golden fried Cheese Curds (Red Stripe beer battered with a ranch dipping sauce); or flavorful Spinach 'n' Artichoke Dip served with pita chips.
