Pyramid IPL Cheeseburger

Pairs with Pyramid IPL / Serves 4


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 3/4 cup Pyramid IPL
  • 1/2 cup half and half creamer
  • 1 1/2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • Chives (fresh chopped)
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • 4 buns (toasted poppy seed)


  1. Season ground beef generously with salt and pepper. Gently (do not over mix the meat) form four patties that are five inches wide and 3/4 inches thick. Make sure to indent the middle with your thumb. Grill burgers to desired doneness.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and mustard powder, cooking a minute or so (do not brown). Whisk in beer, bring to a simmer then whisk in half and half. Simmer, whisking, until thickened, for approximately four minutes. Stir in cheese (you can always add more if you think your sauce isn’t thick enough) and horseradish.
  3. Toast buns and top burger with cheese sauce, chives and sliced tomatoes.
