  2. Cut out the center of the loaf to create a bread boat. Reserve the part you pulled out for
  3. dipping later. Place bread boat on a sheet tray and bake for 7–10 minutes or until crispy.
  4. In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Whisk in flour and let bubble for a minute.
  5. Whisk in brown ale and half-and-half. Whisk in Frank’s Red Hot Original Sauce, Dijon, Worcestershire, garlic powder, kosher salt, and black pepper. Bring to a light simmer. Gradually whisk in cheddar cheese, allowing each bit of cheese to fully melt before adding more cheese. Once the sauce is fully melted and smooth, pour into bread boat.

  7. Garnish with minced parsley. Serve with pretzels, vegetables, reserved bread, and chicken wings for dipping.
