A quick and easy beer cheese fondue made with white cheddar cheese, Bavarian lager, and spicy mustard. Perfect with pretzels, fruit, and brats!


  • 1 lb white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour (or cornstarch)
  • 1 cup German lager, Kölsch, or other lighter beer
  • 1/2 tbsp spicy mustard (I use whole-grain)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch white pepper


  • In a medium bowl, toss the shredded cheese with the flour and set aside.
  • Add the beer to a medium pot, and heat until it just starts to bubble (do not let it boil). Add one cup of the cheese, stirring in a figure-eight pattern until fully melted. Repeat with the remaining cups of cheese until it's fully incorporated.
  • Stir in the mustard, garlic powder, and pepper. Transfer to a warm fondue pot, or keep it warm over very low heat until you're ready to serve. If you're eating it right away, you can also pour it into a ramekin or cast iron. Make sure to stir it frequently so it doesn't congeal. Enjoy!
