  • kosher salt, to taste
  1. Melt butter in a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Once butter has melted whisk in flour. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Whisk in milk and beer and bring to a simmer. Whisk while this is coming up to a simmer.
  3. Add mustard, garlic and horseradish. Cook and occasionally whisk until mixture thickens (about 3-5 minutes).
