I am shocked to learn that someone who is adding a kraft macaroni cheese pack to a beer is not well versed in beer style.

On a technical note, is he planning to add before or after fermentation?

Yeah, pretty shocking.

I was going to tell him to dump the powder in at the end of the boil, but I have no clue.

I think this calls for an experiment. I demand not one, but THREE kraft brews.

1) add cheese pack pre-boil.
2) add cheese pack post-boil.
3) dry-hop, i mean dry-cheese, with the dry cheese.

Sure he is:
Lemonade beer
Blueberry beer
Strawberry beer
Apple beer
Apricot beer
Blackberry beer
Cherry beer
and of course, Cheese beer!!!

When you have those styles, why would you need anything else?

If I had money to burn, I would certainly take you up on this kraft beer experiment!

I had someone tell me several times that I should stop making pale ales, ipas, etc. He told me that I should be making beers that taste like a meal:

Breakfast beer that tastes like eggs, ham, and toast.
Dinner beer that tastes like steak and mashed potatoes or that tastes like a hamburger and french fries.

No no, you need to trick HIM into doing the experiment... in the name of science or some other noble cause!

I don't think you need to trick him by the sounds of it
Just suggest the next "experiemnt" when the previous one fails... "Oh, so it didn't work??? hmmm, maybe if you added the cheese pack after you finished boiling"
