Irish Cheddar Fondue with Stout and Whiskey

We’ve seen quite a few Irish cheddar fondues using whiskey or stout beer, but never the two at once. Good news, since deciding between those two on St. Patrick’s Day…or let’s face it, any other day, is like choosing your favorite child. So get ready to give whiskey and stout a big, cheesy group hug…

As far as what to dip in this fondue, Irish soda bread makes for a great sponge for the cheese sauce, while sweet-tart granny smith apples provide a nice counterpoint to the slight bitterness in the stout. And if you’ve got any extra corned beef, or boiled cabbage and carrots left over from your St. Patty’s festivities, those are great dippers as well.
