Broccoli Cheddar Beer Soup

What is not to like!

2 large onions
4 cups beef stock
2 cups broccoli heads
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup smoked gouda or swiss
1 bottle of fat tire beer or your favorite
4 ounces oil
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups whole milk
Saute onions until carmelized, add beer and beef broth. Using stick blender, blend ingredients until smooth. Make a rue using another frying pan by frying flour in the oil. Careful not to burn. I like a light golden color. Add this to the soup base. Add milk and cheeses. In a separate container, steam broccoli, chop and then add to the cheddar soup.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve with garlic croutons or bacon bits.
