Fair warning: After one taste of our warm, Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip – you won’t want to stop eating it!
There’s something about the taste of a crunchy, salty pretzel, dipped in a rich, creamy, zesty cheese and beer dip that will have your taste buds craving more.
And better yet, this dip is so easy, you can make it in just minutes for your next holiday or game day party.
How do you make Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip?
You’ll start by simmering a strong, dark ale (we used Guinness Stout) in a saucepan on the stove.
Next, stir in a package of softened cream cheese – and whisk into the beer until fully melted and combined.
Finally, add shredded jack and sharp white cheddar cheeses, plus garlic herb Boursin cheese, a teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard powder. Whisk again to combine – and you’re ready to serve!
How do I serve Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip?
You can simply pour your Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip into a bowl and serve it alongside pretzel sticks. It will thicken a bit as it cools – and will still be delicious.
Or – if you have a mini slow cooker, you can use that to keep your Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip warm throughout your party.
And of course, you can also serve this dip with chips, crackers, or veggies – or anything that is dip-able!
Can I make this Cheesy Beer Pretzel Dip ahead of time?
Yes! If you are serving it in a slow cooker, you can simply reheat the dip right in that on low heat (stirring occasionally). Or microwave on low heat, stirring frequently, until the dip is heated through.
