Winchester First, A Downtown Program, is proud to host the 6th annual Beer Cheese Festival in our Historic Downtown District the second weekend in June! Last year an estimated 12,000 people packed the streets of downtown to sample beer cheese, listen to live music, eat great food, and shop from the vendors! This year you can expect even more! Join us as we transform Main St. into Beer Cheese Blvd.
The history of beer cheese dates back to the 1940's in Clark County 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. See you downtown!
