This Beer Macaroni & Cheese recipe is super delicious!! I was hesitant to make it at first becuase I’m not very fond of the taste of beer but this was amazing! The bacon really add a little burst of flavor and really completes it!! My hubby and I devoured this as fast as we could! This would make a perfect SuperBowl dish!!
