  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup Belgian style beer (or amber beer)

Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Add carrot, onion and garlic powder, sauté 8 to 10 minutes. Add flour and stir well. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 minutes or until flour turns golden brown. Combine milk and cream. Slowly pour into flour mixture. Whisk constantly until blended. Turn heat to medium and add beer, and Dijon mustard. Bring to a boil, whisking frequently until creamy. Simmer on low heat 10 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat and slowly stir in cheese, a handful at a time. Heat until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
