IPA Beer Cheese Soup

This IPA beer cheese soup made with our India Pale Ale. Try adding dif­fer­ent top­pings like spicy pop­corn, crou­tons, bacon or any­thing that goes with cheese, which is everything!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 medi­um-large carrot
  • 2–3 cel­ery stalks
  • 1 medi­um-large onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cups broth
  • 12-oz. Lone Tree IPA 
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp Worces­ter­shire sauce
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 4 cups cheese (sharp cheddar)

Instructions

  • Chop the car­rots, cel­ery, and onion and sauté over medi­um heat until com­plete­ly cooked and soft. While sautéing, sea­son it up with salt and pepper.
  • Mince the gar­lic, add to the oth­er veg­eta­bles and sauté a minute at most. Add the flour and stir to coat all of the veg­eta­bles. Cook for 2–3 minutes.

Global Can shortage

During these difficult times, many obstacles have emerged and currently the brewing community is experiencing an aluminum can shortage. We at Lone Tree Brewing wanted to let our fans know that we are working hard to keep beer on the shelves. However, you may notice some of our cans will look slightly different than they typically do as we utilize cans from many irregular sources. Rest assured, the beer will remain true and we will continue to provide quality craft beer to our community.

Many cheers to our friends!
