This sauce can be made with many beer styles. Depending on the final brew being used, you can pair the beers flavor with the type of cheese, with a cuisine in mind to pair this beer cheese sauce to almost any style of dish. Here are a few ideas:
The Classic Cheddar Pale Ale Beer Cheese Sauce: Use a Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale and grate some Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese for this sauce. Try it on nachos, use a cheese fondue or pour over roasted broccoli.
South of the Boarder Chipolte Smoked Jack Beer Cheese Sauce: Add a Rogue Farms Chipotle Ale and use either a pepper or smoked Monterrey Jack cheese. This is awesome over nachos, over enchiladas, as a dip for chips, vegetables (grilled and roasted), over a baked potato or mixed in with cooked elbow macaroni, roasted peppers, caramelized onions and topped with BBQ style potato chips.
German Beer Cheese Sauce: To make the perfect dip for your fresh baked pretzel, take a Märzen | Oktoberfest and add some smoked gouda or räucherkäse cheese. Also perfect to pour some of this over a pretzel coated pork schnitzel served with some spaetzle.
