This recipe came from one of my mothers cook books from the 70's. Not a detailed as today's cookbooks, but wow, this recipe was so great and simple. Made it with store bought shredded cheese (GROSS), then used block cheese, and it made all the difference! I use 2 cheeses, and people go crazy for it. Amazing how simple it is, minus catching your fingers in the cheese grater. :-) Promise you will love!!!!

How to Make So Easy Homemade Beer Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. If you don't have stale beer, pour the bottle in a sauce pan and boil. Grind both cheeses and add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
  2. Depending if you want smooth creamy cheese or not, add the beer (still WARM for creamy) to the cheese mixture. I like mine not smooth, but only discovered that after I made it both ways. Room temperature stale beer or cool for not so smooth. Blend completely and cover. Refrigerate over night.
    Can be served the next day. Great pairing is celery to really taste all the flavors of the cheese and spices.
  3. Tips....mistakes I made that might save you :-)

    1. Do not and I repeat, DO NOT use the store bought bagged shredded cheese. It is not suitable from my experience to stay tasty and tastes fatty.
    2. Depending on taste, I perferred the Sharp Cheese block over the Extra Sharp. The extra sharp just seemed too bitter.
    3. If you don't like white pepper jack cheese, use 1/4 t. Tabasco. The P.J. Cheese doesn't make it too spicy. That opinion is from someone who hates spicy food... (not me)
    5. The total amount will fit into about 3 medium size Mason jars. Before it gets too hard, I put them in the jars, then refrigerate them over night.
