The Best Beer Cheese Dip

How is it we are already talking about Super Bowl? I feel like I just finished taking down Christmas. Nonetheless, one of the great snack food days of the year is upon us — tell me I’m not the only one more excited about the food and commercials than the game – and it’s time to start a game day party plan.

We are going to need football party ideas and football party food!  This Pub-Style Beer Cheese Dip is the perfect appetizer recipe for Super Bowl, March Madness, and any other occasion…..  just begging to be devoured with friends and family!

We LOVE CHEESE at our house.  A lot. Too much, maybe. I’ve shared my favorite grilled cheese,  over the top Buffalo Chicken Mac ‘n Cheese, I’ve even melted it over grapes when I made Grilled Grape Brie and Arugula Flatbread Pizza.

It might be a problem, but as far as problems go….it’s one I don’t mind having. 😉 It usually leads to delicious food. 

Last week I was craving homemade pretzel bites when Allison brought some home from the mall. I knew I needed to whip up a batch of beer cheese dip – it’s like the little black dress of recipes, it goes with everything.

What Kind of Beer to Use in Beer Cheese Dip:

There’s one important thing to note about Beer Cheese Dip – and this might be obvious, but I’m going to say it anyway…… the flavor of Beer Cheese dip depends a LOT on the type/flavor of beer you choose.

If you want subtle beer flavor use a pale or lite beer for a sweeter dip.

For more intense flavor, use darker ale where you will enjoy the robust and bitterness of the beer.

Either way, you go, choose a beer that lights up your taste buds and goes down so smoothly.  If you want to skip the beer completely, just replace it with apple cider.

You can serve beer cheese dip cold or warm with homemade soft pretzel bites, smeared on beer cheese bread or baguette, your favorite crackers, or even broccoli and cauliflower florets, and of course, your favorite beer!  You will be the hit of the party, trust me!

If you want to serve this dip warm, simply whisk constantly in a small saucepan over low heat, or microwave on high in 1-minute intervals, stirring between sessions until cheese dip is warm and heated through.  Enjoy!
