Serves 8 to 10 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 30

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter
1 chopped medium sized yellow onion
At least 1/2 cup chopped carrot
At least 1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 (12-ounce) beer of choice (recommended: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Blind Pig)
7 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, shredded
7 ounces processed Swiss cheese, shredded
2 cups half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound smoked sausage (recommended: Otto's Smoked Polish Ring)


Melt butter in a stockpot over medium heat. Add chopped onion, carrot, and celery. Saute until softened. Add flour. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add chicken broth and beer. Heat until it comes to a boil. Slowly add cheese while stirring until just boiling and smooth. Add half-and-half, salt, dry mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat to low and cook until soup has thickened. Cut smoked sausage into 1/2-inch pieces and place in a saucepan. Saute sausage over medium heat until heated through. It will probably take about 5 to 7 minutes. Add sausage to the soup, transfer to a large serving bowl and serve hot.
