Pretty good, but STRONG flavored. Better with crackers than with chips.



I am a huge fan of beer cheese and find this recipe to be quite satisfying. I usually add crushed red pepper flakes for extra heat.



They are sure to list McCormick brand spices but they don't specify the beer? Don't pick a very hoppy beer as this results in bitterness (the brewpub red suggestion is good because "red" beers are usually malty). Don't use the major American pale lager beers. The brewers want you to drink them ice cold so that you cannot discern the flavor (or lack thereof). Use a beer that does not taste bad when it is warm (if out long enough, your cheese spread will get a bit warm and there is no good reason to ruin it with bad beer). I used a brown ale and I liked the result but a Marzen, bock or Vienna style might work equally well. I want to try this with a strong Belgian ale, too. That could be great!
