Clock Shadow Creamery celebrates a decade in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — It’s time for a toast, or cheese curd, to a Wisconsin cheese shop celebrating a big anniversary.

Clock Shadow Creamery in the Walkers Point neighborhood of Milwaukee celebrates 10 years as the city’s first and only cheese shop.

Since its opening, Clock Shadow has been known for its very squeaky cheese curds and its commitment to environmentally friendly cheesemaking practices.

Steve Hurd is Clock Shadow’s Master Cheesemaker. He has been with the company for four years.

For him, everything is in the satisfaction of feeding customers.

“These are the results of the work. Watching people’s faces when they bite into a cheese curd and they have this wow type look on their face, for me, that’s the satisfaction I get from doing the job,” Hurd said.

Bob Wills owns Clock Shadow Creamery. Wills said that over the past decade he was thrilled to see how well known the Clock Shadow name had become.

“We’re looking at this list of James Beard winning or nominated restaurants in the area and going through it,” Wills said. “We are fortunate to have an affiliation with people who truly care about the quality of their product.”

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Clock Shadow will be hosting a celebration at Walkers Point called Squeak Fest.

It will take place on September 25 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. To find out more, you can visit their Facebook page.​​
