Kentucky Beer Cheese was founded in 1987 by Sue & Jim Castano using the original recipe by Johnny Alman’s restaurant, which was located on the Kentucky River. Sue tweaked the recipe a little and then started making it homemade for her friends. After receiving many compliments and requests for more cheese, Jim Castano bought Sue a large Hobart mixer and told her to, “get selling!” The rest, as they say is history.
Diane and Chris Evans bought the company in 2004. They have continued the superior quality and exquisite flavor of Kentucky Beer Cheese. Since 2004 the company has increased sales by over 300%. Based on the numerous requests for Kentucky Beer Cheese from around the country, Kentucky Beer Cheese has a following far past the borders of Kentucky.
