    Personally for a beer cheese I'd go an IPA... Something sharp, maybe a DIPA...

    Well, i couldn't imagine it either. :sigh: But at least it makes my cerebellar ataxia progress. And being unable to walk and to minister to myself means an unavoidable death to me.
    And what is reefer? :???:Is that some kind of a sigarette with marijuana?

    Just another name for marijuana.... Is it legal where you are? At least medicinally?

    (Sorry, I know it's the beer thread. LOL)

    Alas, it's illegal here. But i won't suffer of living without weed because i haven't ever smoked anything. But booze is completely different. I admit, i used to be a real drunkard sometimes, because i have a strong depression since 16 yrs old, and booze was the only way to silence the constant pain. :tinfoilhat:

    We have a lot of chef ran food trucks around here is why I say that... A lot of beer cheese on the menus... Almost always either a pale ale or an IPA used for the beer cheeses :)

    I'm jealous of all these food trucks you guys have.... :pout: LOL

    But I've decided to use some stout and some IPA.... If that seems weird to anyone, keep in mind, so am I. :weird:

    Not judging... But, wouldn't you much rather make stew, or chili with your stout? :D Okay, maybe I am judging lol

    I wanted vegan cheese dip! :p And I wanted it to be different from the usual roasted cauliflower-cheese sauce I've been making (for a spread or mac-n-cheese). I'm afraid I'll never outgrow my affinity for snacky appetizer-type stuff, hand-held sammiches/wraps, and finger foods.... :rolleyes:

    If I made stew or chili, I'd have to dip something in it. :yes: Plus, we're creepin' up on summer... not gonna be craving soups/stews for a while.

    But I only paid a little over $3 for a Guinness tall-boy, drank half of it (I think it's been 3 years!), already had the IPA, drank some of that.... Anyhoo, I tasted the "cheese" periodically while heating/thickening (yum!)... it's been cooling in a separate dish on a rack & it smells sooo beer-cheesy! :D LOL

    Would you say Guiness stout is a heavy beer? Not too bitter, but flavorful?
    I always stare at all the different types, then go home and wish I had some beer!

    It depends on what your palate is used to to be honest. From my (and Chryssie's) perspective Guinness is a light stout that is kind of bland tasting. But that is because we are used to drinking beers that are a lot heavier and boozier than Guinness. I'd go somewhere that lets you create a mix and match six pack and experiment with what's out there. $15 or so and you have a nice little smorgasbord of beers to try.

    I've been trying gluten free and vegan beers as the football is on at the moment and I associate beer with football!:D

    I bought a case of the Bellfield Brewery: Lawless Village IPA which is made in Scotland. I first didn't like it, but I found it okay once I got used to the taste. It is quite floral and reminds me of rose/ Turkish Delight.

    I can see that being the case... That's a style that your palate has to adapt to... At first you're like "Okay, I don't know about this.. It's really bitter, floral, piney, etc... I don't think I like it" but then your palate gets used to it and you go from that to really really liking it. Or at least that was how I was when I first got into IPA's.
