In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted add the garlic and onion powder.

Slowly whisk in the flour, whisking constantly, until lightly browned, about 1 minute.

Slowly whisk in the beer and half and half. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce is thickened and just begins to bubble, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and slowly add in the cheeses, whisking constantly, until melted and combined. About 8-10 min.

Whisk in the Dijon mustard and the Worcestershire sauce.

Garnish with chives and black pepper, if you like. Serve with pretzels or crusty bread; re-warm gently as needed.
