Spicy Beer Cheese Sauce

This sauce came about as I made Kelli Thomas's, Sweet Sloppy Joes from Just A Pinch and took it to work for a pot luck. Another lady there brought a spicy cheese sauce and chips BUT everyone put her sauce on my Sloppy Joes including myself and it was magic! It was really good and so I have been asked to make these again. I definitely will, with the sauce! Can use this sauce for tortilla chips or soft pretzels as well.
