Excellent! I used a local Wit beer. I doubled the recipe to use for 2 for dipping shrimp in. The sauce has a slight, subtle "butterscotch" flavor. Thinking it would really go well with a Dungeness crab! Made for Best of 2011 game.

I served this with fish, and it was delicious! First time I've ever used beer in a butter sauce for fish....This is great! Made for PAC Spring 2011.
