As if you weren’t envious enough that you were stuck in your apartment and could not go to SXSW, the great state of Wisconsin used its time there to build the world’s longest cheeseboard!

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board created an enormous spread that contained over 100 different varieties of cheese from various Wisconsin brands.

The mega-cheeseboard was displayed in the #SXSWisconsin Lounge in the JW Marriott hotel in Austin and was over 70 feet long. Our eyes were certainly bigger than our stomachs when scrolling through photo after photo of the cheesy feat. We couldn’t possibly even name all that dairy.

Luckily, a press release for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board explained that it featured “some of Wisconsin's finest cheeses from caved-aged cheddars to fresh, squeaky curds” and made use of “hand-rubbed wheels, blue-veined cheddars, stinky limburger and the 2017 U.S. Cheese Champion, Sartori Black Pepper BellaVitano.”

The cheese lounge also included special events such as a morning hangover remedy (perfect for those SXSWgoers jamming to music all night) which housed a Bloody Mary bar, as well as afternoon happy hours featuring “expert-inspired” wine and cheese pairings. Sounds fancy.

"We wanted to let SXSW attendees embark on the ultimate cheese journey of flavor, texture, style and variety while recharging, relaxing and connecting," said Suzanne Fanning, vice president of marketing communications at the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, in the release. "Wisconsin artisan cheesemakers possess a rare combination of rich heritage and incredible innovation, and we're excited to share their many award-winning cheeses with the world at SXSW."

The Daily Meal has reached out to the Guinness Book of World Records on the Wisconsin cheeseboard being the actual world record holder. We suspect that they have a strong chance at the title, unlike Britain’s failed cheeseboard event.

Feeling inspired to build your own cheeseboard or even to take a trip to Wisconsin? Should you journey to the Midwest in search of cheese, cheese, and more cheese, The Daily Meal has got you covered with the best food and drink from Milwaukee to Appleton.

Wisconsin is making cheese history at SXSW by creating the world's longest cheese board for attendees. The enormous cheese board features over two thousand pounds and over 100 different varieties of cheese from brands across the state.

"We wanted to let SXSW attendees embark on the ultimate cheese journey of flavor, texture, style and variety while recharging, relaxing and connecting," says Suzanne Fanning, VP of Marketing Communications at Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. "Wisconsin artisan cheesemakers possess a rare combination of rich heritage and incredible innovation, and we're excited to share their many award-winning cheeses with the world at SXSW."

The record-breaking cheese board in the #SXSWisconsin Lounge at the JW Marriott is over 70 feet long and features some of Wisconsin's finest cheeses from caved-aged cheddars to fresh, squeaky curds and includes hand-rubbed wheels, blue-veined cheddars, stinky limburger and the 2017 US Cheese Champion, Sartori Black Pepper BellaVitano®. Special events in the lounge include a morning hangover remedy featuring a Bloody Mary bar and afternoon happy hours with expert-inspired wine and cheese pairings.

Participating cheese companies from Wisconsin include Artisan Cheese Exchange, Arena Cheese, BelGioioso®, Carr Valley Cheese, Caves of Faribault, Cedar Grove Cheese, Chalet Cheese, Comstock Creamery, Cow Candy, Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese, Decatur Dairy, Edelweiss Creamery, Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery, Roth Cheese, Hook's Cheese, LaClare Family Creamery, Maple Leaf Cheese, Marieke Gouda, Norseland Cheese, Odyssey Feta, Pine River Pre-Pack, Prairie Farms, Red Barn Family Farms, Roelli Cheese, Saputo Specialty Cheese, Sartori Cheese, Saxon™ Creamery, Schuman Cheese, Specialty Cheese, Swiss Valley, Uplands Cheese, V&V Supremo, Widmer's Cheese, Winona Foods and Wisconsin Cheese Group. Meat provided by Columbus Foods.

The giant cheese board is built inside a wooden barn that was created with digital fabrication tool technology (basically a giant printer for wood) by urban design nonprofit Better Block.

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board is a nonprofit organization of dairy farmers that promotes the consumption of milk, cheese and other dairy products made in America's Dairyland. Wisconsin produces 47% of the specialty cheese in the US and currently holds the title for US Cheese Champion.
