Bourbon Beer Cheese

Beer cheese is a quintessential snack of the Bluegrass, Horses, Bourbon & Boone region. Winchester even has its own Beer Cheese Trail, and rumor has it Queen Elizabeth II brought some home after a visit to horse country. This smoky, spicy version kicks things up a notch with the addition of bourbon, making it a true ode to the Bluegrass – and a sure-fire hit at your next get together.
