  2. Sprinkle the flour over the sautéed vegetables and stir well to coat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Slowly pour in the chicken or vegetable broth while whisking continuously to avoid lumps. Add the beer and continue whisking until the mixture is smooth and slightly thickened.

  5. Pour in the whole milk, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir well to combine. Cook the soup on low heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through and the flavors are well blended, about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Ladle the Cheesy Beer Soup into bowls and garnish with chopped chives or green onions.
