Recipe by K
"Cracker Barrel® extra sharp Cheddar cheese and an amber beer is a must, it gives just the right amount of tang to the dip. You can make this up to 2 days ahead of time and store in fridge. Beer may separate from the dip but a quick stir will remedy. Great with pretzels."

2 (10 ounce) packages
extra-sharp Cheddar cheese (such as Cracker Barrel®), shredded
1 (12 ounce) bottle
cayenne pepper, or to taste
I thought this recipe was ok. I used Amber Bock, and the flavor just didn't go well with the cheese. I added a little worchestershire sauce after I tasted it, and it made it a little better. Maybe this recipe would've been better if I chose I better beer.
The first time I made it, as you both said, it was ok, but could not salvage, so I decided to experiment. I added an 8oz package of cream cheese and used 1/2-3/4 of a can of beer. It came out much better, the consistency was perfect. I also added a pinch of pepper and onion powder.
could not salvage at all
