This is a easy tutorial on how to make Beer Cheese Dip.
I recently visited my family in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is known for what? Beer and Cheese!!!
My Uncle Robert Kriz hosted dinner for my entire family. (We have a large family. My grandmother had 6 kids.) He is an amazing cook and is always making something delicious in the kitchen. I look forward to eating anything he creates.
He made this delicious Beer and Cheese Dip for an appetizer. It is creamy, smooth, full of flavor with just a hint of beer. It is great on pretzels, chips, crackers, or veggies.
You can use any beer you have on hand for this recipe. The type of beer you use will determine the flavor of the cheese dip. If you don’t want a strong beer taste, use a lighter beer. If you want the beer to be more profound, use a darker beer. I like the taste of beer in the dip, so I use a stronger beer when I make this.
I personally prefer freshly grated cheese for this recipe also. If you are in a hurry, you can use the pre-shredded cheese, but it will be more flavorful with fresh grated cheddar.
If you like this Beer Cheese Dip recipe, check out my Olive Pimento Cheese recipe. It is another treasured family recipe. It is similar to the traditional Southern Pimento Cheese, but is more sharp and has olives. It is great over rye and pumpernickel bread or crackers.
My Cheddar Pecan Cheese Ring with Elderberry Jelly recipe is another great cheese appetizer recipe to make. I got this recipe from my husband’s Aunt. The sweet and tart Elderberry Jelly compliments the sharp and salty cheese mixture. It is absolutely delicious!
