1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup beer
2 teaspoons minced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor or with an electric mixer.
Pack the cheese into crocks or a bowl, and cover tightly. The cheese is best after at least a day's mellowing, and it keeps for a couple of weeks.
Serve with crackers or bread.
