Reviews for Beer Dip
"I've made this for a few years now. It is always asked for during football season. The kids love it as much as my hubby does. The beer certainly affects the taste. Use something you love to drink."
"We love this dip...even leftover it's still great! I sprinkle crumbled bacon on top & serve with Scoops or pretzels. So simple & always a hit!!"
"Make this for our Christmas with family on New Years Day. It was wonderful and the recipe makes a lot with few ingredients. Just what I like."
"Everyone loves this. The only down side, you have to eat it all, the leftovers are not good, as the beer goes stale. But it is so good, it shouldn't be a problem eating it all!"
"Way too salty and just gross! Went right in the trash."
"Fantasic go-to dip! I used a lager, and couldn't taste it using 1/3 cup, so I added more to thin the dip to the consistency I wanted. I didn't put the whole 2 cups of cheese in either, as one to 1 1/2 cups seemed sufficient. It's a bit salty, even after adding the extra beer. I don't mind though!"
"This is a really different recipe I love this and so do all my friends - I did use grated cheddar instead of shredded - it made it easier to not have it drip all over. All my friends love this and can't believe the ingredients"
"A variation on this dip is a definite favorite in my family and work place. I add chopped green onions which gives it a bit more flavor and we use liquid ranch dressing instead of the dry mix. ."
"I just made this!!! LOVE it!!! The only thing I might change next time is the type of cheese. I used extra sharp cheddar, and it was a little too much. Next time I think I'll use regular cheddar...Michelle was correct, once you start eating it, you can't stop!!!Dottie, Sheboygan, WI."
