Midwest Cheese Experience at One Eleven Main

Midwest Cheeses

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.
