Spice up football season with a new dip recipe to munch on while watching the game! Beer cheese dip is easy to make ahead so you can enjoy the game!

Need a new dip recipe? Beer cheese dip is a quick and easy appetizer perfect for a tailgate, party or just a lazy game day at home. Add your favorite beer to basic dip ingredients and then let the dip rest before serving with crackers or pretzels.

It's officially football season which means it's time to find new recipes to munch on during the game. My go to football watching snack is a yummy dip recipe. They are great for watching alone or at a tailgate.  I have some old stand by favorite dip recipes like Mexican Corn Dip and homemade onion dip .  But I also like to liven things up and try something new.  This football season, it's all about beer and cheese.

Ingredients for Beer Cheese Dip

This beer cheese dip is a cold dip that's easy to whip up and let sit in the fridge until you're ready to eat it. If you want a hot dip, check out Jalapeno and Beer Queso.  The recipe calls for basic dip ingredients like sour cream, cream cheese and cheese.  A darker beer will give the dip a stronger flavor but you can use whatever you like or have on hand.

Beer and Cheese Dip

Just mix it all together and let it sit in the fridge.  The longer it sits, the better it tastes as the flavors meld. I'd make it at least a day ahead of time.

Cheese Beer Dip

When you're ready to serve the dip, put it in a dish and top with green onions for garnish if you want. Or not. Sometimes that's too fussy for me and I just need to eat it.

Beer cheese dip is great served with your choice of crackers or pretzels. It's also great with homemade pretzels, pita chips or even tortilla chips.  Or you know, just use a spoon. Whatever your heart desires!

  • 1 packet of ranch salad dressing seasoning
  • 1 -2 teaspoons seasoning salt

  3. Refrigerate the dip several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to mix together.
  4. Serve with pretzels, crackers or chips.
