  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  2. 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  3. ½ cup half and half
  4. ¾ cup full-bodied lager beer or stout, room temperature
  5. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  6. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  7. 1 to 2 teaspoons tabasco sauce (or to taste)
  8. ½ teaspoon cumin, ground
  9. ¼ teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  10. 3 to 4 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  11. salt and ground black pepper to taste
  12. ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until a thick paste forms, about 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in half and half and beer until smooth. Increase heat to medium-high and allow mixture to simmer. Whisk in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco sauce, cumin and chili flakes (if using). Continue cooking for 4 to 5 minutes until very thick.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat, or decrease heat to low. Stir in cheese, in portions. Make sure that each batch of cheese is completely melted before adding the next, to ensure a smooth texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve warm with vegetable sticks, toast points, pretzels, etc.
  1. If desired, 1 package of ranch-style dressing can be dissolved into the beer and added to the mixture. Adjust seasonings according to taste.
