For those of you who want to try something different.
1 lb of grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 bottles of beer
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup grated carrot
1 cup very thinly sliced onion
1 cup very thinly sliced celery
3 cups milk
1/3 cup flour
Combine beer and broth in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add vegetables and simmer for 15 minutes. Combine half of the milk and the flour. Whisk until smooth. Add this to the pot and bring back to boil. Reduce to a rapid simmer and slowly whisk in cheddar. Add remaining milk salt and pepper to taste. Parmesan cheese and Worchester sauce may be added for extra taste.
This is a very nice tasting soup and something different.
