8 oz block of sharp cheddar (we used a 12-month aged cheddar)
1 cup pilsner or beer of choice
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup whole milk
1 Tbsp Lusty Monk Original Sin Mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika


Shred cheese before starting. This should be about 2 cups once it's shredded.

In medium saucepan, melt the butter.

Whisk in flour until incorporated into the butter.

Add milk and continue to whisk.

Pour in beer until mixed fully.

Mix in the spices, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.

Slowly add cheese in small increments until all is melted.

Serve warm with pretzels or favorite dipping items.
