1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, halved
1 11.2 oz. bottle of Orval Trappist Ale

Combine Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, flour, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
Rub cut side of garlic clove around bottom and sides of fondue pot.
Pour beer into fondue pot and slowly bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, about 5 minutes.
Gradually stir cheese mixture into beer, adding small amounts at a time, until cheese is melted and blended, 10 to 15 minutes.
Stir hot pepper sauce into cheese mixture.
Serve in a fondue pot with cubes of bread on the side; pairs beautifully with Orval, served in a chalice.
