Beer Cheese Dip made with Blue Moon Belgian White beer, Colby Jack and sharp White Cheddar cheeses and hot sauce. Dip your favorite tortilla chip or pretzels for a tasty game day snack.
I don’t know what it is about football and beer that go hand in hand. Throw cheese into the mix and you have the ultimate party dip with this Beer Cheese Dip. I generally don’t make a lot of dips; however, these two are my other favorites: Hot Creamed Spinach Dip and Fiesta Chicken Spinach Dip.
I’ve seen this dip on the menu at Applebee’s several times, but I’ve never ordered it myself so I can’t say whether or not it tastes the same; however, this Beer Cheese Dip was loaded with flavor and pretty simple to make.
With the Super Bowl coming up in a few weeks, I just had to share this dip with you so that you can add it to your party menu. It’s that good!
To make this dip, start by melting butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour to form a roux; then add your favorite beer (I used Blue Moon Belgian White because it’s what I had on hand), milk, garlic, Dijon mustard, hot sauce (as much or as little as you like), and shredded Colby Jack and Sharp White Cheddar cheeses.Beer Cheese Dip made with Blue Moon Belgian White beer, Colby Jack and sharp White Cheddar cheeses and hot sauce.

Keep whisking over medium heat until the cheese melts and the dip is smooth. This dip took about 15 minutes to make in total so not only is is delicious, it’s quick too!
Once the dip is done, put it in a serving bowl and sprinkle some paprika or cayenne pepper on top as a garnish (I opted for paprika) and serve with your favorite tortilla chip or pretzels (I used soft baked pretzel nuggets).
This Beer Cheese Dip made about 2 cups so it’s plenty for a crowd. In fact, because I was only just making it for the three of us we had quite a bit left over so I made macaroni and cheese with the leftover dip, sprinkled some buttery coated panko breadcrumbs on top; then baked it until hot and bubbly. ~Enjoy!
