Welsh Rarebit (Emile Henry Fondue Pot)

Bought my wife Jen this great EH Foudue Pot for Christmas and created some REAL Welsh Rarebit in it tonight as an appetizer with our dinner. 
Welsh Rarebit is a dish made with a savory sauce of melted cheese and various other ingredients and served hot and is most commonly used as a fondue with a variety of breads for dipping.  Welsh Rarebit can also be used as a cheese sauce in other recipes.

        ¼ Cup Unsalted Butter (1/2 stick)
        ¼ Cup Unbleached flour
        Heavy ½ Tsp. Himalayan Pink salt
        Heavy ½ Tsp. ground Black Pepper
        ¼ Tsp. Dry Mustard
        Heavy ¼ Tsp. Lite Worcestershire Sauce
        4-6 Shakes of Tabasco
        1 Cup 2% Organic Milk
        ½ Cup Light  Beer
        8 Oz. Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese

1.    Melt butter and add all ingredients except the beer and milk.  Blend and bring to a boil.
2.    Remove from heat and stir in the milk and place back on the heat and bring to boil again.
3.    Remove from heat and stir in the beer.
4.    Add the cheese and whisk (in small proportions) until it is melted and set aside until ready to serve on fondue flame.
