Combine cheeses in a bowl with flour. Add beer to a small pot and bring up to a bubble over medium heat. Reduce the heat to simmer and add cheese in handfuls. Stir constantly, melting the cheese in batches. Stir in a figure-eight pattern with wooden spoon. When the cheese has been incorporated fully, stir in the mustard, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
Hollow out the 420 Extra Pale Ale Bread to form a bread bowl. Pour the fondue into the bowl.
Make cubes from the leftover bread that was hollowed, dip cubes into the fondue and enjoy.
