LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — For three days, the Lexington Legends will rebrand themselves as the Kentucky Beer Cheese.

Beer cheese is a huge culinary staple in the Bluegrass state. The name change will take place with specialty jerseys and hats from Aug. 13 to Aug. 15.

“The Beer Cheese industry is massive and has always enjoyed having a home in Kentucky after it was birthed in Clark County,” said Legends President and CEO, Andy Shea. “We have been cheesing ever since we had the opportunity to partner with Kentucky Beer Cheese on this collaboration. We are very excited about spreading Beer Cheese hats, logos, and uniforms throughout Kentucky and Minor League Baseball. We can’t wait to ‘Say Cheese’ and enjoy this new alternate identity of the Legends!”

There will also be specialty themed concessions including Beer Cheese Pizza from Apollo Pizza, Chicken Beer Cheese Egg Rolls, Beer Cheese Burger, Beer Cheese Melt on Texas Toast among others
