Beer Cheese Festival in downtown Winchester, Kentucky. Last year I participated in the festival as an art & craft vendor. Though I'm taking a break this year from selling my jewelry at art shows, I was thankful to still get to take part in this unique festival!
Commercial and Amateur Beer Cheese Contests took place early Saturday afternoon. As a judge for the commercial category, I had the task of blind judging 14 entries based on taste and texture.
Larry Mac's beer cheese had a bright, but not overpowering flavor and a smooth texture with what I found to be a pleasant subtle crunch from finely minced onion.
