Honey Roasted Grapefruit Wheat Ale and Meyer Lemon Cupcakes  My Honey Roasted Ruby Red Grapefruit Wheat Ale didn’t win the competition, so I consoled myself by using it to make cupcakes.

Easy Beer Cheese - Two Ways

Easy Beer Cheese – Two Ways

Easy Beer Cheese - Two Ways

So I was trying to relax at the nail salon while getting an overdue and much deserved manicure and pedicure.  I had a glass of delicious red wine in my hand and reached for some beer cheese when I’m abruptly awakened from my dream like state with a complaint from Lisa.  You have never put this beer cheese on your blog.  What?

Au contraire mon frere.

Easy Beer Cheese - Two Ways

I have put Lisa’s beer cheese recipe on this ridiculous website, but I can understand the oversight since it wasn’t in the title.  It was actually the first recipe I shared when I launched my new look almost two years ago.

In order to make Lisa eat her words happy and because I absolutely cannot get excited about either one of the teams playing in the Super Bowl this year, so I’m going to be faceplanting in some beer cheese only coming up long enough to watch commercials and hope Tom Brady gets sacked, I share with you two versions of beer cheese – Lisa’s original and pimento.

Yes, from the girl who said she doesn’t like pimentos because she doesn’t like olives.  I’m looking at you, Lisa.

NOTES:

  1. I used my Irish Red Ale home brew for this, but you can use any beer that you want.  Just remember that it is going to taste like whatever beer you use, so be careful of anything too hoppy or with flavors you don’t want in your cheese.
  2. Serve with pretzels, chips, bread, pita, vegetables, or any other kind of snack you like
