Ranch dressing mix flavors this fast-to-fix mixture that's packed with shredded cheese and is made to go with pretzels. It's one of those snacks that when you start eating it, you can't stop! This dip can be made with any type of beer, including nonalcoholic. I've taken it to many parties and am always asked for the recipe. —Michelle Long, New Castle, Colorado

"Super easy, quick appetizer to make for any get together. Recommend using a light beer (not like a dark stout), and if you're looking to go for a more healthy route, you can use the low fat cream cheese (it still tastes good!)."

"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."

"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!"

"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"
