2019 Country Boy Beer Cheese Competition Winner & 2019 Winchester Beer Cheese Festival People's Choice.
First off, let’s talk about Trick. Trick is Patrick Jones, chef at the Merrick Inn for 16 years. He and Bobby Murray (owner of the Merrick Inn) have been throwing around ideas and tweaking recipes for a long time. Patrick’s or Trick’s beer cheese has been on the menu at Merrick since 2009. Trey Murray (Bobby’s son) steps in and says “I think we should enter the Winchester Beer Cheese Festival”. These people are serious about beer cheese! Well, low and behold Trick’s Beer Cheese takes home the championship trophy for People’s Choice. Then it wins County Boy’s competition. Decision was made to package it and give it a go. We believed in it and now others do to. You should give it a try!
