Chris Peissig missed the delicious Wisconsin cheese from his home state so much he decided to open his own shop, The Cheese Haus, 1380 S. 21st St., in Colorado Springs.

In addition to an array of cheese, he stocks other foods from Wisconsin such as sausage, brats, bacon and artisan crackers. He also has Colorado products such as honey from Schmidt Apiaries. He's hosting a grand opening from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday with free beer from Iron Bird Brewery

"They are from Wisconsin, too," Peissig said. "Everything in the store will be 10 percent off. I'm going to be cooking some brats and other sausages."
