Super yummy beer and cheese soup that won't win any health awards, but it is perfect for game night.

1/2 cup butter
3 celery ribs
1 medium onion
1/4 cup plus 3 TB flour
8 ounces extra sharp cheddar
4 ounces monterey jack cheese
3/4 cup heavy cream 
5 cups stock (chicken or veggie)
12 oz beer (hefeweizen or blonde style)
salt and pepper to taste
green onion (optional for garnish)

large soup pot
immersion blender (if you prefer smooth soup)

1. 
Melt the butter in a large soup pot over medium low heat.
2. Chop up the celery and onion and add to the butter. If you aren't blending your soup, you will probably want to chop the veggies finer than I did in the photo.
3. Cook the mixture over medium heat until the onions are translucent.

That's alot of butter! Sounds good though.

The butter combined with the flour works to thicken the soup. You could probably cut down the butter and use alternative thickening methods or have a thinner soup! :D
