Yeah, you read that right. I'm in culinary school and we made a beer cheesecake last week, and it kicked ass. Here's the recipe for a half batch(two 9' round cake pans)

2 lbs. cream cheese
9.6 oz. granulated sugar
1/2 oz. vanilla
1/2 oz. lemon icing fruit/ zest
4 whole large eggs
2 egg yolks
2.4 oz. heavy whipping cream
(now the best part)
5 oz. Guiness or a dark porter beer(or whatever kind you prefer, these give the best flavor)

Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a mixer for 4 minutes, then add the lemon. Scrape the bowl well, then add eggs, yolks, and vanilla a little at a time until well incorporated. Add whipping cream, mix on low for 1 minute. Mix in the beer until you have a nice, well blended mass.
Grease and line pans with parchment paper, put them on a sheet tray with water, and bake at 350 until it doesn't jiggle.

When its done, let it rest for 2 hours, then flip it out and enjoy! at this point, you could add graham cracker crust or fruit on top, I used raspberries and it was awesome.

How come when Dad asks for the recipe he gets a cockeyed set of snapshots taken with a phone, but the Brothers here get a nicely transcribed version?

Fine with me....hey guys! He's all yours now. Birthday is August something or other (2nd)....and he always seems to need socks.

They got it first because this recipe should be in your email at home from about an hour ago, if it sent right!
