What makes this Wisconsin Cheddar Broccoli Soup? Is it because the sharp cheddar cheese came from Wisconsin? Is it because it was invented in the Badger State?
Nope. It's because you make it with beer.
I love cooking with beer almost as much as I love cooking with wine, which is quite a lot. Oddly, I don't drink a lot of beer, but I just love the chewy, yeasty flavor it always gives to food.
