Wisconsin brings the world’s largest cheeseboard to SXSW

What if I told you there was a place where the cheese was always replenished, where the crackers were plentiful, where the fruit preserves were sticky and the almonds seasoned? Yeah, you’d be pretty into it.

We stumbled upon this non-vegan paradise on Tuesday during South by Southwest on the third floor of the J.W. Marriott, as Wisconsin set up a barn party featuring the (alleged) largest cheeseboard in the world, more than 70 feet long and serving up a few dozen of the more than 600 varietals of cheese from Wisconsin. The cheese lounge, which also features sodas and a bloody mary bar, is open to SXSW badgeholders 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 13-14.

Below are a few of our favorites from the tasting.
