Family Tradition

Olivia-and-Michael-eating-beer-cheese,-Dec-24-1984Eating beer cheese has always been a family tradition. At the lake, at Derby parties, block parties and birthday parties; at tailgates, holidays, barbecues, picnics and game time; during daytime and late nights. Beer cheese is a treat best served with laughter, family and friends. To us, beer cheese is not just a snack, it’s how we say, “Thank you,” “It’s party time,” and even “I love you.”

When my brother Michael and I were growing up, we were beer cheese enthusiasts and connoisseurs. To be honest, we were fanatics! Kentuckians can be fanatic about a few things: bourbon, thoroughbred horses, the Wildcats and beer cheese. Everyone has his or her favorite.

IMG_0433In 2006, we made beer cheese for the first time and we found a new favorite hobby to go with our favorite food. As we experimented and shared our beer cheese with family and friends, they urged us to make more and share more, and with their support and encouragement we even entered the Beer Cheese Festival’s amateur division – and won!

With that vote of confidence from beer cheese experts and enthusiasts, we knew we needed to share more! That’s how Olivia’s Beer Cheese came to be: from our family’s kitchen, through a lot of good times, a bit of growing up and with a steady stream of love and dedication, every batch comes to you full of flavor and ready for a good time.

From our family to yours…we believe everyone should have the chance to share beer cheese with those they love. You don’t have to share, but you really really should.

Beer + Cheese = Love

We make Olivia’s Beer Cheese exactly how we like our beer cheese: creamy, dip-able, and full of flavor. We create unique blends using craft brews, bourbon, and rye whiskey, and soften the heat level so that you can taste those ingredients.

And speaking of ingredients, we use high quality ingredients that produce the best flavor in every batch of our artisan beer cheese. We never use anything in our beer cheese that we wouldn’t serve right up on our table at home.

When you share Olivia’s Beer Cheese, you’re sharing a special family tradition that’s made with great quality ingredients like sharp cheddar cheese, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskeys and Straight American Rye Whiskeys, and a special blend of spices. We can’t tell you the full recipe, but the formula is Beer+Cheese=Love.
