Melt butter in a small saucepan. When the butter just starts to melt add the Cheddar. Season with salt, dry mustard, Tabasco sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. As the cheese begins to melt, stir in beer and then stir in beaten egg. Do not allow it to get stringy or leathery. When the mixture is soft and creamy, serve with a sprinkle of paprika. If you keep this over low heat, you may dip pieces of French bread in it as you do with Swiss fondue. Spooned over toast, on pasta, great spooned over Eggs on toast, and homefries or french fries.
