Cheese Fondue

We don't really do much for new years eve, I can never stay awake until midnight these days anyway, so our fun new years celebration was to have a fondue day.  We started out with this cheddar cheese fondue, moved on to an oil fondue with filet mignon, shrimp and lobster and finished with a chocolate fondue.  They were all delicious but to be honest I am all about the cheese, is there anything better than a warm cheese and beer fondue with a huge pile of crusty bread for dipping?

1/2 cup beer 
2 teaspoons chopped garlic 
2 teaspoons dry mustard powder 
2 teaspoons worcester sauce 
6 ounces medium sharp cheddar cheese 
2 ounces Emmentaler Swiss cheese  
2 tablespoons all purpose flour

If using an electric fondue pot, turn on to medium.  Add beer, garlic, dry mustard, and worcester sauce to the pot and mix well. Grate the cheeses and toss with flour, coating the cheese well.  When the beer mixture is warm, add one third of the cheese and whisk very well. Once the cheese has been incorporated well, add half of the remaining cheese and whisk in very well. Add the remaining cheese and whisk until nice and smooth.
