The 10th Annual Beer Cheese Festival in the Birthplace of Beer Cheese – Winchester, Kentucky

This past weekend was the 10th Annual Beer Cheese Festival in downtown Winchester, Kentucky aka the birthplace of beer cheese. If you weren't one of the 30,000 people there, then what were you actually doing with your life?! The Beer Cheese Festival is the ONE AND ONLY Beer Cheese Festival in the WORLD! There’s no other place to celebrate it than the birthplace of beer cheese. Beer cheese was first invented back in the 1940s. In fact, in 2013, the Commonwealth of Kentucky deemed Clark County the birthplace of beer cheese – HB 206 (BR 924). #kentucky #beercheese #food #festival #summer #south

If you weren’t one of the 30,000 people there, then what were you actually doing with your life?! It’s always a beautiful day, but y’all it’s always ridiculously hot the weekend of the Beer Cheese Festival. It never fails! I went last year, so I knew it would be a scorcher this year. I wanted to be more prepared this time for being out in the heat than I was last time. The UV Index was very high at a level 9 and the temperature was in the 90s (just like last year!). This year, we brought two camel backs, so we could have access to cold water at all times to keep us hydrated. I also brought several power banks to power my USB fan. I had to keep cool, because there wasn’t any breeze! The Cairn Coffee House (which is one of the places on the Beer Cheese Trail) is a great place to cool off and enjoy a bite to eat, but sadly they don’t have their Frozen Lemonade anymore! Read More
