Beer-Pimiento Cheese Spread

Pimiento cheese (also often spelled pimento) dates to at least the late 1800s, when the blend of pimientos (a sweet pepper) and cheese was served at formal gatherings. It quickly became a staple for the working man because it didn’t require refrigeration. Often called the pate or caviar of the South, pimiento cheese also was an important food during war times and the Great Depression.

Great for parties with chips and veggies, or party bread for mini sandwiches.
