My Dad, Jim Hunt, is the inspiration behind Hunt’s Cheese on Tap.
He is the founder of Pizza Wholesale Company, which he began in 1976. In 1990, Dad and his three brothers created Hunt Brothers Pizza. I grew up in the pizza business. Dad taught me and my 7 siblings to always treat people the way we want to be treated, and to live our lives and operate our business, according to the bible.
Dad left for heaven on January 3, 2016. This quote from my Dad’s book, From Dawn to Dusk, helped instill my desire to share this product: “Success is doing whatever gives you peace of mind on earth and leads you toward life eternal with God”.
In this business venture, I want to be a blessing to as many people as possible, and be able to offer the best quality product possible, and to give God all the glory. God has blessed me with my beautiful wife, Jennifer, who has supported and encouraged me to get this product out there, and my daughter Olivia, who wants me to change the name to Olivia’s Beer Cheese.
Growing up in Paris, Kentucky, beer cheese was always in our home for holidays, weekends, or just because we were in the mood for the delicious, spicy snack. Made with a local draught beer, this cheese spread is perfect to spread on a cracker, dipping vegetables in it, heating up and adding to a hot dog or cheeseburger, or to use in some of your favorite recipes, such as mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese.
There’s a million creative things you can do with it. I came up with this recipe in 2009, and after giving it out to family and friends for several years, I decided to make it available for you. We are currently operating in the Tampa, Florida area, and sell it directly to convenience stores, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and liquor stores. Feel free to send us an email so that we can direct you to the closest locations to get some beer cheese, or if you want to offer it in your business.
