Reason to be a cheesehead:

Brennanís Country Farm Market

Brennanís in Brookfield, 19000 W. Blue Mound Rd., must be a mouseís idea of heaven. Atkins and South Beach dieters would likely agree.

With one-third of the store devoted to more than 30 varieties of cheese, low-carb dieters donít need to worry about boredom. Brennanís buys direct from cheese factories here and abroad, providing an exotic experience to even the most discriminating palate.

The most popular cheese is the storeís 4-year old cheddar. Cranberry and blueberry cheddars and maple syrup cheese top the list of unusual offerings.

Each day, Kathleen Coolman, cheese manager for the Brookfield store, puts out different samples for customers to try. For the adventurous, thereís horseradish cheddar.

Or perhaps youíd like to try a sample of cheese made in Tasmania or New Zealand.

Wondering what to send Aunt Gertrude for Christmas? Brennanís offers custom cheese boxes sure to please even the most fussy relative or customer.
