Winchester hosting Beer Cheese Week

By Fred Petke

In central Kentucky, there are a number of food-centric weeks. Winchester is joining the fray with an event to celebrate one of its most famous products.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 2, a dozen restaurants will offer special beer cheese dishes at a set price.

Winchester is touted as the birthplace of beer cheese.

Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce Director Cindy Banks said the event is open to chamber members and runs through Nov. 8.

Participating restaurants are:

— Full Circle Market, Mediterranean chicken with spinach and fetaweizen (take and bake)

— Don Senor Mexican Restaurant, beer cheese chimichanga

— DJ’s Steakhouse, beer cheese nachos

— Blue Isle Homestyle Restaurant and Bar, Blue Isle Beer Cheese hot brown.

— Thompson Catering and Special events, Frank’s buffalo chicken beer cheese dip (take and bake)

— Broadway Cafe, ultimate nachos with Bootlegger’s beer cheese.

— Gaunce’s Cafe and Deli, Kentucky hot ham and cheese.

— Giovanni’s, beer cheese and chicken pasta.

— Loma’s at the Opera House, beer cheese and pork belly tacos.

— Woody’s Sports Bar and Grill, beer cheese quesadilla.

— Pilot View Mini Mart, beer cheese steak omelet.

— Hall’s on the River, Hall’s Beer Cheese burger.

All dishes are $9.99. People can vote for their favorite on the chamber’s Facebook page.

Chamber president Lauren Frazer said each restaurant will have postcards with a QR code to link to the website for people to place their votes. They can also go to the chamber of commerce’s FAcebook page and vote there as well.

“I’m hoping it will be something fun,” Frazer said.

If diners post a photo of their dish on Facebook, they will be eligible to win other prizes, including a giveaway for anyone who has all 12 dishes.
