Hey this is Wisconsin. Got to have beer and cheese soup.


Sauté the onion and garlic in butter until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add the flour; cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat, about 5 minutes.  Whisk in the milk.  Add the bay leaves; cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes.  Stir in the cheese gradually; cook just until the cheese melts.  Remove form heat.  Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg; remove the bay leaves.  Stir in the beer.
