    Beer Cheese Dip! One of my favorite things about going to a pub or brewery is the pub cheese. I like the Beer Cheese Dip, but I also LOVE the soft pretzels. Soft pretzels are my weakness. This recipe is a zesty, no cook recipe that is perfect for any party year round.

    If you’ve been to the gourmet cheese section at your grocery store, I’m sure you’ve seen tubs of overpriced pub cheese. Usually flavored with beer or wine, the whole concept of pub cheese was developed in England by pubs that didn’t serve whole meals, but wanted something extra with their pretzels and chips that was cheap and easy.

    The origins of pub cheese make it laughable that it is now considered gourmet and so darn expensive. Pub cheese gets most of its flavor from the alcohol and cheese selections, so choose wisely.

    Although I usually prefer to sip on a light beer, I use something with more body and flavor for cooking. If you are serving to children or pregnant woman, you can simmer the beer prior to adding to burn off alcohol or just substitute with water. Allow to cool before combining into mixture.

    If you prefer to not use alcohol at all, you can substitute water, but be mindful this will directly impact the flavor, so you may want to add more horseradish or other spices.

    Although cheddar is the standard, you can also change the flavor by using a different type of cheese, even flavored cheese like a horseradish cheddar or another artisan blend.

    Serve your Beer Cheese Dip with hard pretzels, soft pretzel bites, chips, crackers, celery or carrot sticks or with a fresh baguette. You can even make things a little fancier by serving in ramekins for individual appetizers.

    Tools for making Beer Cheese Dip:

    Ramekins– I like giving folks their own individual sauce cups. Then you don’t have to worry about double dipping! Ramekins are also great for ingredient preparation and baking mini soufflés.

    Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!
