Invented by Mark Schiffler, the original chef of Wynkoop Brewery in Denver, Colorado, this Wisconsin-inspired soup has been traded and tweaked over the years into its current state: a thick, cheddar-based soup cut through with piquant Gorgonzola. Its present incarnation comes to us from Max Potter, who in turn received it from Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, founder of Wynkoop. A fan of the Wisconsin Badgers, Governor Hickenlooper serves it for good luck during basketball games.
