Transfer to a plastic container, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate overnight for more infused flavor.
Step 3
In a saucepan, bring beer to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer. Whisk in cream cheese and cayenne pepper, stir until smooth. Gradually stir in cheese until melted and smooth. Keep warm.
Step 4
