........there are lots of stories how this delicious spread, Snappy Cheese, came to be a traditional Kentucky taste treat.
As the verbal and online history goes, one summer back in the 1940s, a cousin from AZ was visiting another cousin who had a restaurant along the bend on the Kentucky river between Madison and Clark County. As they were discussing bar sales and trying to increase sales, the visiting cousin whipped up a little “snappy cheese” and the craze began. Today there is as much history around Snappy Cheese as there is Daniel Boone in our Kentucky lore.
Many a local family and former workers of the restaurant have their own recipe blends of cheese, stale beer and spices. There are over one hundred commercially produced brands from Kentucky to Flordia to New York and points West. There is a “Beer Cheese Festival” in Winchester KY to praise, celebrate and crown the commercial and amateur entrants of the yearly contest. However, Snappy Beer Cheese is not widely distributed because being premixed tubs makes it expensive and hard to ship safely, especially in summer’s heat.
That is --until now!
