This was wonderful! The beer smelled awful when first beginning to heat it but once the cheese was added it became super fragrant. We had to stir it, continuously, for almost 10 more minutes than we were supposed to because the cheese was not thickening like we wanted it. Served with cauliflower and french bread.


I boiled a can of bud select, let it simmer till the foam was going away, then switched heat to low and added a bunch of shredded cheddar and gruyere. Man gruyere is expensive, but the processed gruyere doesn't work, you have to get the real deal. I added the 2T flour, a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and tiny bit of worcestershire. I did this kinda ghetto because I dont have a fondue pot, I just transferred the fondue to a slow cooker set to warm mode :) It worked:) Served with chopped breads and sausage.


Perfect recipe!
