We dare you to find a better meal than a hearty, greaasy, comfort-food-galore grilled cheese. We mean, is there really anything better than a gooey, crispy grilled cheese? Well, maybe if you add some beer to it.
Adding beer to your grilled cheese recipe is as natural as can be. Everyone loves to talk about cheese and beer pairings, so we started with a never-fail pairing: brown ale and cheddar cheese. The malty, dark fruit flavors of a brown ale (like our classic Chestnut Brown Ale) balances out a mild, aged cheddar cheese. The final result? A flavor-packed, sweet and sharp grilled cheese. We can already see plenty of variations bouncing off this original recipe, with more cheese and beer pairings to be explored: a Bock beer and Swiss cheese, an Oatmeal Stout and a gouda. Oh, the possibilities are endless.
If you're looking to jazz up the recipe, make it into a breakfast sandwich with bacon, prosciutto, or sliced ham; or, keep it vegetarian with a sliced avocado on top. There's never a wrong way to eat a grilled cheese.
