This recipe was designed around two of my favorite things, beer and Stilton. I opted to use Dogfish Head's World Wide Stout as I really like the way it pairs with the cheese, but any sweet strong ale (Belgian Strong, Barleywine, etc.) would work. Likewise, the cheese is the same thing. I love the Colston Bassett Stilton, but any strong bleu would fit the bill.
