Smoked Sausage and Cheddar Beer Sauce Sliders

I just love sliders and these are especially good. These only took about 15 minute to assemble and they were delicious! My whole family loved them and asked for seconds. The cheesey beer sauce is so good with the sausage and garlicky buttery bread. They are perfect for a weeknight or a party.
