Beer Mac and Cheese (not just for men)

Mac and Cheese combined with my favorite drink, as a Bavarian beer has to be my favorite drink 😉
I actually made this for my husband and his friends, when they had their game night, but after tasting while cooking it, I just couldn’t resist anymore.
So I just had to make me a whole bowl for myself.
The rich creaminess stays, even tho, I barely use fat and just fat reduced cheese. You can actually taste the beer, it gives it a kind of surprisingly amazing bitter flavor.
It’s really hard to describe, you better try it yourself!
Oh, and the leftover beer is perfect for drinking while and after cooking :)
