Fried cheese in a beer batter...what more could I possibly want? Does anyone have some beer recommendations for use with the batter? I think a good dark beer like Guiness or Killian's Irish Red would do well. Our Kroger store is also stocking a variety of flavored cheese curds, so I'm going to be happily experimenting with this recipe for a while.

This would definitely be a cheat, but it'd be worth it.
