The best thing about cheese is that it can go with anything. Fruit, bread, summer sausage and of course…beer. This fondue recipe makes use of Rogue Ales Hazelnut Brown Nectar as an ingredient. We recommend cracking one open after you are done cooking too. So the next time you have a few friends over consider serving this fondue from our FINEX 1 Qt. Sauce Pot before or after your meal.  You can dip an assortment of food into the fondue. Get creative! We love the Summer Sausage from Olympia Provisons along with apples from Washington state. This recipe is based on Fireside Beer Cheese Fondue by

  1. Let shredded cheeses stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Rub the bottom and sides of a FINEX 1 Qt. Sauce Pot with the cut surface of shallot.
