Honored for the post.

Beer cheese caught my attention. I'm familiar with the other vittles but not beer cheese. Sounds like the result of a "happy accident" between beer and cheese. Please elaborate.....

See below. It's a Kentucky thing.

Beer Cheese

2 cups finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne (ground red) pepper
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup flat beer (Miller Lite or similar beer works)
Combine all dry ingredients in food processor and pulse 2-3 times. Once partially shredded, add beer and blend until smooth.

Thanks Justin - I'll give it a try. I presume it's a dip - or should I grill it up :)

This video should also help. It's a dip.
