Beer Cheese

Beer Cheese

It’s been a while since we’ve had a German-themed night, but every now and then I have a craving for Beer Cheese. This finger-licking recipe is fantastic for potlucks…or just for yourself to smother on anything and everything.


  • 3 Tbsp unsalted buuter
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 cup beer (lager)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 0.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.25 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 0.25 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (~12 oz)


  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk until combined, ~30 seconds.
  2. Whisk in beer, then milk, stirring continuously to eliminate any flour lumps.
  3. Simmer over medium heat, whisking often, until it has thickened.
  4. Stir in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  5. Add in cheese, stirring until completely melted.
  6. Serve warm.
