Quick, easy and tasty appy to serve or take to a freind's. I made this in a little ramekin and took to a single friend's house for a small cocktail party (scaled down for half the number of people). Tasty! Just a note on the *warm* beer - I did zmail AP and was told that we need to micro slightly warmer than room temp - good to know as I would have used room temp beer!
