Kentucky Beer Cheese Spread
Use a food processor to combine sharp Cheddar with beer and seasonings to make your own smooth, creamy cheese spread perfect for casual get-togethers.
This recipe turned out perfectly and tastes amazing! We didn't modify anything and used Country Boy's Nacho Bait Habanero Blonde Ale for the beer to give it a little extra kick. Incredible. Best beer cheese we've ever had!
I love this sort of cheese but I did not enjoy this recipe. I don’t think the garlic powder and possibly the peppers went well with the rest of the ingredients.
Great recipe!!! Have used different types of beers and cheeses. My favorite is using the habanero sculpin beer and a fresh jalapeño from my garden.
I am a native Kentuckian from the Kentucky River area, where this spread originated. This is a great recipe but, if you want just a little extra of a zip, add a half teaspoon of horseradish. It will give it a snap that you will not soon forget.
This turned out delicious! I followed the recipe except for accidentally doubling the cayenne, so I didn’t add the extra pinch on top. Used Founders IPA and Franks Red Hot. My husband declared it “perfect”!
I was attending a birthday party was last weekend, and I was searching for an appetizer to bring to the party. One that would not need reheating (I didn't want to occupy her stove). I found this recipe from my go-to guy, Chef John and the rest was history. I found this to be incredibly addicting, from the get-go.... so did all the guests! I used a Bud Light that was gathering dust in my fridge, but I think I'll try a Sam Adams next just to see what will happen. The best part is, the day after (when we were hungover on the couch), my guy surprised me by making a grilled cheese for me using this spread and copious amounts of pepperjack. BEST HANGOVER MEAL, EVER. Thank you, Chef John!
