Imagine diving into a plate of pure bliss – the perfect fusion of creamy indulgence and a hint of something extraordinary – Lager Mac & Cheese. This isn't your run-of-the-mill mac 'n' cheese; it's a culinary masterpiece that takes comfort food up a notch. Picture pasta cooked to perfection, draped in a cheese sauce so decadent it's practically a hug for your taste buds, made even more special with the subtle kick of lager.


4 T. butter, divided
3 c. milk
1 c. lager
10 oz. small macaroni
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 oz. fontina cheese, shredded
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. breadcrumbs

1/2 c. parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.

  2. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Remove two (2) tablespoons and set aside in a medium bowl.

  3. Add the milk and lager to the pot and bring to a steady simmer – season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the macaroni and cook, stirring regularly, until the macaroni is mostly cooked through and creamy, around 10-12 minutes. 

  4. Add in the cheddar, mozzarella, and fontina. Continue cooking until the cheese is completely melted and very creamy, another 3-4 minutes.

  5. Remove the pot from heat and transfer the macaroni mixture to a medium casserole dish. 

  6. To the reserved butter, add the garlic, breadcrumbs, and parmesan; mix well. Spread the breadcrumb mixture on top of the macaroni. 

  7. Place in the oven to bake until golden brown and crispy on top, approximately 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
