beer-cheese-1 I don’t know if Wisconsin has an official soup, but if it did, it would be beer cheese soup.  As a newbie Wisconsinite, I don’t have a tried and true recipe, so browsing all the options was a bit overwhelming.  I had to decide on the type of cheese, type of beer, and if I wanted to include add-ins from bratwurst to butternut squash. I settled for a combo of cheddar and swiss- cheddar for the flavor and swiss for the creaminess.  For beer, I picked a local brew of course.  I chose a recipe with some carrot, green onion, celery and potatoes, because let’s face it, we all need to eat our veggies and it is easy to get in your daily requirement when they are swimming in cheesy goodness.  Do you have a favorite beer cheese soup recipe?
