  • Ready In

  1. Pour beer into a bowl and whisk until beer loses its carbonation, about 30 seconds. Set aside.
  2. Place shredded cheese into the work bowl of a food processor; add garlic, dry mustard powder, black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, salt, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and flat beer.
  3. Process until smooth and creamy, pulsing a few times, scraping the sides, and blending for about 2 total minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. If adding more seasoning, pulse a few times to mix.
  4. Transfer cheese spread to a bowl and sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper. Spread tastes best when refrigerated overnight to blend flavors, but it can be served right away if needed.

came out a little to hot and was very lose. I thought it was very bad.

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...

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....

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.
