Take Home a Taste of Watertown

Updated: Feb 5, 2018

One of the highlights of a trip to the Wisconsin State Fair is the Wisconsin Products Pavilion.  It is a fun tour of tastes produced in our great state.  You don’t have to wait until August to take a tour of homemade Wisconsin products.  Watertown can accommodate year round! 

Kraemer Wisconsin Cheese– Purveyors of Artisan Cheese since 1929. 

The Kraemer family makes over 13 varieties of cheese spreads, with flavors ranging from Sharp Cheddar to Brandy Old Fashioned.  The local company also makes a delicious variety of homemade fudge.  You can also purchase from over 140 styles, varieties, and ages of

cheese, and buy sausages made by local artisans.  While the store ships 500,000 pounds of premium cheese and cheese products each year nationwide and abroad, a stop to the store is a must to truly experience the unique varieties offered.  1173 North 4th Street, Watertown, WI, 53098

Emil's Pizza- This company is a thriving operation, producing one of the most sought after, high-quality pizzas in the state of Wisconsin.  While the business does not offer pizza to eat on-site, they distribute to restaurants and grocery stores around the state and provide a fundraiser program. 

Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters– The Berres Brothers brand was officially launched in March of 1992, when the company began

roasting its own coffee.  The rest is history.  Currently over 100 types of specialty coffees are roasted daily, including more than 40 flavored varieties.  The coffees can be found in grocery stores throughout the Midwest, and can be ordered online, but a trip to their location offers so much more.   Here you can experience a delicious café of fresh sandwiches, wraps, soups, and of course coffee drinks.  You will also be able to buy fresh roasted coffee beans and accessories.  On select dates, you may take a free coffee class where you will learn how to roast, grind, and brew the perfect cup of coffee. Yum! 202 Air Park Drive, Watertown WI 53094
