Quick, easy to make and seriously addicting. Perfect for a delicious party snack! I like to call it by its mashed up name: Quesale.


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 ale beer (not hoppy)
8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Scallions, for garnish
Pretzels, for serving


1) Pour ale beer into a large cup and stir to remove as much carbonation as possible.

2) In a medium pot over medium heat, add butter and melt. Once melted, add flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes until roux turns a light tan color.

3) Slowly whisk in beer. It should thicken almost immediately as you whisk it in. If it’s a little watery, continue to cook the sauce until it is the consistency of a light gravy. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.

4) Add cheese and whisk until melted. Season with salt and hot sauce.

5) Pour into a large bowl and garnish with finely chopped scallions. Serve immediately with hard pretzels.
