Sriracha Double IPA Cheese Sauce

The mission if you choose to accept – make broccoli taste great without flopping some crud out of a bottle. MISSION ACCEPTED!

Making cheese sauce can be incredibly easy,  if you are patient, have a strong arm, and pay attention. This super-quick cheese sauce features the Sun Pillar Double IPA from Lolo Peak Brewing, although any double IPA will make the grade (okay, not every double IPA). Sriracha adds the fire, and cream cheese mellows everything out.
