by Jody Prival
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Rub inside of heavy saucepan with cut surface of garlic; discard garlic. Add beer and heat slowly. Coat cheeses with flour. Gradually add to beer, stirring constantly, till mixture is thickened and bubbly. (Do not allow mixture to become too hot.) Stir in hot pepper sauce.
Transfer to fondue pot; place over fondue burner. Spear dipper with fondue fork; dip into fondue, swirling to coat. (If mixture becomes too thick, stir in a little additional warmed beer.) Use pieces of French bread for dipping.
