Step 1

In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and whisk to combine, cooking about one minute until smooth.

Gradually add in beer and milk, whisking constantly. Add garlic, dry mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Switch to a wooden spoon and stir frequently until thickened, about 5 to 10 minutes. The sauce should begin to coat the back of the spoon.
