This recipe has a lot of potential! I need to preface this be saying Mr. LTH and I love, love, love beer, yet do NOT, as a rule, enjoy foods cooked with/in beer. Yet, this recipe intrigued me and I took a risk and made it anyway (come on, cheese, bacon, beer, pretzels?!). As written, it's a little bland (I more than doubled the garlic and couldn't taste it!), but with a few minor tweaks could be my second favorite mac & cheese (nothing's going to top our recipe!). I'd rec increasing both the garlic and the bacon significantly (the bacon taste was almost undetectable, sadly) and adding a dash of dry mustard, as well as the *wet* mustard. I'd also rec using a variety of flavorful cheeses. I also found I needed to cook my *roux* a lot longer to get it to thicken up, so don't start boiling your noodles until the white sauce has begun to simmer. This is def worth giving a try!
