Beer cheese, which has a cult following in Kentucky, is the perfect spread for burgers and better grilled cheeses

There are a few truths inherent to long summer weekends, chief among them being that there will inevitably be a few leftover bottles or cans of beer — you know, the stuff that got a little too warm out at the park or by the pool and lost its effervescent sparkle.
Earlier this month, I ended up with a couple de-fizzed bottles of pale, amber ale, but didn’t want to just toss them out, so I thought back to a few years ago when I attended The Kentucky Beer Cheese Festival. The one-day festival is held annually in Winchester, Ky., where visitors and residents celebrate beer cheese, which is, as the name suggests, a spread made of beer, sharp cheese and spices.
