Add butter to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add flour and whisk for 30 seconds. Slowly whisk in the beer, followed by the milk. Continue to cook and whisk for about 5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened. Add mustard, Worcestershire and salt, whisking to combine.

It can be made 3 days ahead and warmed up slowly over the stove.
