I need to do some more writing, but the short story is this:
I created Mike’s Beer Cheese back in 2001 for my cousin Phil’s Super Bowl
party. I told him a long story about I was inspired by a pre-Prohibition recipe called Kentucky Beer Cheese, how it
was used to prime bar patrons into drinking more beer and how I modified the recipe to be much more bold in flavor. He didn’t care to relate all this to
his guests, so he pulled out a post-it and wrote “Mike’s Beer Cheese” on it. Five pounds of cheese was devoured and the name stuck. I am forever
remembered by my cousin’s friends as “the guy who makes beer cheese.”
OK, well that was day one. I have another ten years to catch you up on. Don’t worry, I’ll get it down.
