How to make beer mac and cheese casserole

Print this recipe
Beer cheese is a classic dip to serve with cocktails, but with the recipe below, it comes to the main course. A beer cheese sauce tossed with noodles makes for a delicious play on classic mac and cheese.
When choosing the beer for this casserole, the sky's the limit. A hoppy IPA will add a nice bitterness to the dish, whereas an amber beer is a bit sweeter and will add a nice, rich roundness to it. Whichever beer you choose will make a nice accompaniment to the dish.
