People’s Choice


Ask almost anyone what the best part of the Beer Cheese Festival is, and they’ll tell you, “Sampling beer cheese!” –and they’re right. We start at 10am and go all the way to 5pm. You can sample beer cheese from any of our vendors. Sample them all. Find your favorite. Cast your vote. You can even purchase beer cheese right from the vendors. When you need a break, there are plenty of other things to do at the festival–listen to live music, drink at the UK Alumni Beer Garden, visit arts & crafts or Kentucky Proud booths…and then you can head right back into the beer cheese section, and try some more, because at the end of the day it’s all about the beer cheese! So you’re wondering how the People’s Choice voting and award works and how you get to cast your vote. Here are the answers! Thank you for participating in the prestigious People’s Choice Award!
