Beer Cheese was first created in Kentucky, and remains a staple appetizer of the Bluegrass State.
My version is updated with better cheeses and seasonings, ideal flavor balance and is a MUST for your Super Bowl party this Sunday! It’s also spectacular on a cheeseburger or used in mac and cheese, BTW.
Enjoy, my citizens! 🙂
Battle on – The Generalissimo
5oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese
5oz. grated 3 year old Gouda (or use 5 ounces more sharp cheddar)
5oz. grated mild cheddar cheese
5oz. grated fiore sardo (or use 5 ounces more mild cheddar)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions with tops, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
3/4 cup stale lager
Soften cheese in microwave. Combine all the ingredients and mix until blended. Cover and store in a bowl in the refrigerator.
The mixture will harden after being chilled. Set out and allow to reach room temperature before serving.

Note: This cheese tastes better the longer it sits. Serve with crackers.
