Beer dip tastes great, no matter where you come from.

I’m not a native of Wisconsin but I have grown to love many things about the badger state.  Like any place, it’s the folks from here that make it unique.

    3 stars because of the instructions. Instead of mixing it like they suggest, first mix the cream cheese and seasoning with a hand mixer. Then fold the cheddar cheese in. Add the beer after that, a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

    1. Your method sounds better for those who prefer more dirty dishes (mixer-beaters.) Aside from this trivial detail; what did you think of the flavor?

  2. 5 stars
    What a fabulous, easy, full of flavour dip recipe, Dan! This is definitely perfect for game day – or any day for that matter!

  3. Ooo my Hungry Hubby would be all over this the next time the football is on. Of course, I mean soccer, not football but game day food translates whatever you’re watching right?!

  4. 5 stars
    Oh my gosh I know EXACTLY who I’m going to make this for and they’re going to love it! You’ve just won the holidays for me hahaha. Thanks!
