Food: Beer Cheese Festival, Winchester
June 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The 7th Annual Beer Cheese Festival is in downtown Winchester (on Main Street) on June 11 from 10 am – 5 pm.
Last year an estimated 12,000 people packed the streets of Winchester to sample beer cheese, listen to live music, and shop from vendors.
“Beer Cheese dates back to the 1940’s in Clark Co. when it is believed to first be made by Joe Allman for his cousin, John Allman’s, restaurants on the Kentucky River. Since then people have fallen for this delicious spread that goes great on carrots, celery, crackers, or anything you want. Now you can find Beer Cheese on the menu at many restaurants and you can even pick up a tub from local stores.”
