(NC) - The Brewers Association of Canada encourages you to experiment with the beer recommended in this recipe. The beauty of beer is that its complex flavours can change the character of a dish each time you prepare it - heartier with a dark beer, lighter with a lager.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 bottle (12 oz.) Alpine Lager
  • 3 cups old Canadian Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Baguette, cubed; each cube with crust


In saucepan, melt butter; blend in flour, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Gradually stir in beer; stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; add cheese, stir until melted. Transfer to fondue pot; place over low heat. Serve with bread cubes; use long handled fondue forks.
