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.

  1. I’m no sports fan but I am a fan of food and as I make my own ranch seasoning, I fell I must put this dip on the menu soon! Thanks for sharing 😀

  2. Okay I’m intrigued! I’ve made dips similar to this, but never with beer! I think my hubs would love this, I cannot wait to try it. Thanks!

  3. Is it OK to substitute NA beer for this recipe. I’m in a 12 step program. It sounds very good, tho. I’d eat it with soft pretzels!
