Shred or cube 6 ounces of medium-sharp cheddar cheese and 2 ounces of Emmentaler Swiss cheese. Toss the cheese in 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour to coat. Add the cheese in thirds to the hot beer mixture, stirring well between each batch to fully melt and incorporate the cheese. Serve the fondue when the cheese fully melts.

To make the Wisconsin trio fondue, combine 8 ounces each of shredded butterkase and fontina cheese with 1/4 cup of cornstarch or flour to coat the cheese. Heat 1 cup of Chablis, Chardonnay or other dry white wine with 1/4 cup of dry sherry and 1 tablespoon of chopped shallots for one to two minutes in a double boiler or fondue pot. Mix in half of the cheese, whisking until it fully melts. Continue to add in the rest of cheese by the handful, incorporating it in the same manner.

Once all the cheese melts, add 4 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese and 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Top the fondue with 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions to serve.
