About Hall’s Beer Cheese:
As the name implies, Hall’s Beer Cheese is the combination of two of man’s most important achievements: beer and cheese. Add in savory spices and a little heat and you have The Original Hall’s Snappy Beer Cheese recipe developed in Central Kentucky more than half a century ago.
Kentucky has a unique culinary heritage of innovation that has produced some of the world’s most beloved flavors: Kentucky Fried Chicken, bourbon, and beer cheese. Legend has it that this unique snack was developed by Joe Allman for his cousin Johnny Allman to introduce in his various restaurants on the Kentucky River. Johnny allegedly lost one restaurant, along with his recipes, to Carl Johnson in a card game in the early 1960s. After Mr. Johnson passed away, George and Gertrude Hall acquired the restaurant and its recipes in 1965. Since that time, Hall’s On the River has been a mainstay in the Central Kentucky dining scene. Hall’s Original Snappy Beer Cheese was an integral part of that success, extending the love of the brand nationally and internationally.
