How to make Beer Cheese Soup using Frankenmuth's Batch 69 IPA

I had a strong lust for beer cheese soup recently. There are hundreds of recipes online for it and most of them are boring & bland, calling for watery beer with very little character or flavor. Sifting through some of them, I found a workable one from the Food Network's website and altered it to my taste. Also, since this is a very German-American recipe, I thought it fitting to use one of Frankenmuth Brewery's beers. Any of them would probably taste great, but I had some of their Batch 69 IPA in the fridge, so we set to work with that.

Recap of Gracie's Arcadia Ales Beer Dinner

Recently, we had the pleasure of attending the Arcadia Ales beer dinner at Gracie's Place in Williamston. It was a 5-course meal, each course served with a different Arcadia beer. As usual, the ambiance and feel of Gracie's was first rate and they had a long table set up for us near the open kitchen, so we could see some of the dishes being prepared and plated.
