Cheddar Soup

4 tb Unsalted butter
1/2 c Finely diced celery
1/2 c Finely diced leeks white part only
1/2 c Finely diced carrots
4 tb All purpose flour
4 c Beef broth
1 Bottle light beer 12 oz
1 lb Vermont cheddar white
1 lb New york cheddar orange
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Fresh ground black pepper
Salt to taste
Fresh chives snipped for garnish


Melt the butter in heavy soup pot. Add the diced celery, leeks and carrots; cook, stirring, over low heat for 3 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, over low heat an additional 2 minutes. Add the broth and beer. Bring to a simmer very slowly so vegetables become tender, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Over low heat, gradually add the cheeses, whisking all the time, until smooth. Season with cayenne, black pepper and salt. Continue cooking over low heat until heated through. Do not boil, or soup will separate.
