"My family and friends love this recipe, but if you don't love blue cheese you will not like it at all! I always get asked for the recipe. My son in law will put a little out and hide the rest in the refrigerator for himself to eat later."

"Wow! I don't think the other reviewer liked this. We thought it was good overall. I think the mustard comes through too strong. I don't know why it's called "beer" cheese since there is so little beer in the recipe."
