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!
Absolutely delicious. We followed the recipe but added some camembert and cream cheese. We used a porter beer, and it all turned out amazing.
Be advised this IS a thicker cheese spread. You should be able to tell that from the pictures and the DIRECTIONS. This is not a runny, velveeta cheese dip. If you want those….well there are recipes for that, go find one. Having said that, this dip has a wonderful flavor! You really, really do want to leave it overnight. The cheese flavor gets a little of its own back overnight and the beer flavor mellows out.
Basically, after a night in the fridge, the flavor is spot on. If you eat it right away, be prepared for it to taste mostly like beer. I usually use a lager or pilsner….sometimes a light brown beer even. I let it come to room temperature and serve it with fresh, soft pretzels. There is never anything at all left over.
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!
