Serious Cheese: Super Bowl Beer and Cheese Fondue
If the American flag were to be redesigned in our time, you could make a strong case for ditching the old red, white, and blue in favor of three shades of brown. Indeed, you can't get much more American than beer, cheese, and football. And what better way to bring these pillars of three than with a cheddar and beer fondue you can serve to your hungry guests at your Super Bowl party this weekend.
Beer and cheese have a particularly strong affinity for one another, and many (including me) would argue that the pairing is generally more reliable than one of cheese and wine. There's something about the bready, sweet, and nutty flavor of beer that seems to match well with similar elements in cheese. Combine the two in a fondue and you're in for a real treat.
