Garlicky Beer Cheese Dip

Cheese Dip

We’ve made cheese dips before, but this one is something special. This Beer Cheese Dip is a rich, full-flavored cheese dip perfect for pretzel dipping.

Cheese dip has to be cheesy. That should go without saying. Many cheese dips are watered down with milk or cream, so they barely taste cheesy at all. Well, not the case here! Our dip has three different cheeses: cream cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella. Besides cheese, there’s only three more ingredients: our Fresh Churned Garlic Butter, (which adds a delicious garlicky flavor), half and half, and of course, beer.

Beer Cheese

Beer cheese is actually a thing. It’s cheese with enough beer added for taste. Typically, they’ll add some garlic and spice to compliment the flavor, so it was a no-brainer here as well.

We used an Irish beer. Partly because it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, and partly because it’s full of flavor. Garlic Butter really pumps up the flavor– it’s a party for your taste buds!

When we say that this is perfect for dipping pretzels, we’re talking about soft pretzels. You can find them at your grocery store, usually in the freezer section. They take less than 5 minutes to bake. And it’s totally worth it. So delicious!

But if you’d rather dip bread or chips, that’s fine too! Use what you have. All I know is, you’ll just want to get this Beer Cheese Dip in your mouth as soon as possible!

    Made this on Christmas Eve and served with soft pretzels. It was a huge hit! Was asked to make it again for New Year’s Eve…this time a double batch! Will definitely be a go to recipe since it is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious!!

    Hi Laura, thanks for the question! I’m sure it would work in a crockpot, though we’ve never tried it. You might have to add more half and half if it get too thick.

    Okay, I know it’s in the title but is there anything I can replace the beer with? We don’t drink beer and I don’t want to buy a 6 pack just to be able to make this. But it sounds amazing!

    It’s okay, I don’t drink beer either! All I did was buy a single can at the grocery store and dump out the rest.

    Hi, Shelly! You can, though I would strongly recommend using our Garlic Butter for a much better flavor.
