Shop Local Kentucky Presents the 9th Annual Beer Cheese Festival

April 12, 2017

Your favorite tees and your favorite cheese! We are excited to be presenting the 9th installment of the Beer Cheese Festival held in Winchester, Kentucky. As the birthplace of both beer cheese and our founder, Rick Paynter, it all seemed to make sense that the world's only Beer Cheese Festival be put on in partnership with Shop Local Kentucky!

What is Beer Cheese?

(Skip this if you are in tune with beer cheese) Beer cheese is a smooth cheese spread that can be spicy or have a nice bite. It goes great on crackers, chips, veggies and best served with a cold long neck Ale-8... and yes it does have cooked beer in it. No worries the alcohol is cooked off!

What is the Beer Cheese Festival?

This one day event will be held for in downtown Winchester, Kentucky on June 10 from 10AM-5PM. It is a celebration of all things local with dozens of beer cheese vendors lined up on main street serving samples of their cheesy recipes competing for the winning spot in three categories of beer cheese glory. The winner is voted on by the people!

If beer cheese ain't you thing, no worries, there will be a craft beer garden with your favorite local brews, local vendors (including yours truly), food trucks, and music. 

Why you're coming?

Namely to drink local brews, eat the best beer cheese the state has to offer and give us some high fives. We will have wares that you can only get at the Festival including beer cheese and some special Funchester merch! Mark your calendars for June 10 and take the short drive over to Winchester! We will see ya there!
