An impromptu recipe for a cold night. 

1/2 stick butter

1/2 onion chopped 

1/4 cup flour 

1 cup chicken stock- give or take 

6 oz beer – we used Brewery 85 – local pale ale 

Salt/ pepper to taste 

8 oz. very sharp cheddar grated 


Sautée the onion in the butter until translucent. Whisk in the flour and salt & peeper and stir over medium low heat. Allie to bubble gently for several minutes to cook out the starchy flavor. Add the beer, stir until it bubbles again then add 8 oz of stock. Cook until bubbling then add cheese and stir until smooth.  Adjust seasonings and stock to desired thickness.
