I did not have high hopes for this dip - it just didn't seem like the ingredients listed would magically blend up into something with a dip consistency. Was I ever wrong! The flavor is amazing, the assembly couldn't be easier, and the heat is just right. I used an IPA for the beer and the flavor really shined. Give this one a try!
We didn't care for this. Appearance, texture, and taste were unappealing.
Made this for Christmas Eve. Liked by all
I suggested this recipe to a friend on thebuzz, today. I don't usually make recipe suggestions that I haven't tried. The longer I thought about this today, I just knew I had to make it, as I knew the men in my family would love. Well, I was correct. It says: "Spread tastes best when refrigerated overnight to blend flavors, but it can be served right away if needed." Well, it wasn't needed right away, but that didn't stop my DH from chowing down with a few pretzels. I took a bowl out to my dad and he liked it also. I told them both to wait until tomorrow or Sunday (Super Bowl) and it would taste even better. I'm taking a larger bowl down to my son in Tennessee to enjoy, and I have no doubt he will like it, also. I used a Yuengling® Amber Beer for the flavoring. Can't wait to give this cheese dip a try on Sunday! (Super Bowl XLIX (49) New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks)
This recipe turned out perfectly and tastes amazing! We didn't modify anything and used Country Boy's Nacho Bait Habanero Blonde Ale for the beer to give it a little extra kick. Incredible. Best beer cheese we've ever had!
I made this recipe for the first time to take to a Kentucky Derby party. It turned out wonderfully delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except for using sharp cheddar instead of extra sharp. Also, I used Bell's Oberon Ale which worked well. For a more malty complex flavor, you could use a darker beer and it would still turn out great. I served this dip with crackers and pita bread, although, it would be wonderful with soft pretzels too.
I didn't like this at all. Too mustardy. I won't be making this again, it's just not the flavoring I like.
I have a recipe very similar to this but with caraway seeds and no hot sauce or garlic. I like this one better.
