Most men are a little funny about sitting around, dipping small pieces of food into cheese sauce. But, even my husband, the meat and potatoes guy, really likes this fondue. I'm thinking it's the beer... Actually, I've discovered that a room full of men watching a game is the perfect place to set a crock pot filled with this combination of melted cheese/beer/hot sauce, and a tray of smoked sausage, vegetables and bread. Seems odd, but they really dig in! A few cans of beer alongside helps, too.
