- Combine ground beef, beer and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four - 1/2 inch-thick patties.
- Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 8-10 minutes until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers at 160°F, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place buns, cut-side down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.
