Equipment

  • double boiler
  • Cheese Grater
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 8 oz sharp yellow cheddar grated
  • 4 oz Emmental Cheese grated
  • 6 oz Light Lager Beer
  • 3 cloves Fresh Garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tsps. Mustard Powder
  • 2 tbsps. Flour
  • 1 tsp. Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce

Instructions

  • Grate both the Cheddar and Emmental swiss cheese into a large mixing bowl. Place it aside.
  • Add the beer, garlic, dry mustard, and Worcestershire sauce to a double boiler. Heat it on medium-high heat on the stovetop until warm.
  • In the mixing bowl that contains the grated cheese, add the flour and toss it with the cheese until it's evenly distributed.
  • Add 1/3 of the cheese mixture to the double boiler and whisk until fully combined.
  • Repeat step 4 by adding the remaining cheese (small amounts at a time) until it's fully combined and melted into a sauce.

Notes

To reheat beer cheese, you can add it to a microwave and microwave in 30-second intervals until creamy. 
A double boiler is recommended but not required. You can cook it in a saucepan on the stovetop, but you'll need to keep the heat low and stir frequently to prevent burning.
