Cheddar and Beer Cheesecake

Remember when grocery stores had dishes, pans and books to buy if you purchased groceries in their stores. I have 3 books from a series, which I didn't finish buying the whole volume. It is The A B C's of cooking, by family circle. I sure wish I had followed thru and gotten the whole set. This is one of the amazing recipes I have found and find interesting. I wanted to share with you.
