  1. Melt butter and olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in shallots and carrots. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth.
  3. Stir in vegetable broth, beer, broccoli, bay leaves, nutmeg, paprika and salt. Bring to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until broccoli is softened.
  4. Remove bay leaves and puree soup. You can do this by removing the soup from the stove and pouring it into a blender in batches, or by using an immersion blender. If you do it in an actual blender, make sure the soup is cool so the blender does not break.
  5. Return pot of soup to stove over low heat. Stir in cheese until it is fully melted and creamy.
  6. Remove from heat, ladle into bowls, serve with more cheese if desired and enjoy!
