Reviews forBeer Dip
"Way too salty.....after one dip of pretzel, not one guest touched again. Did not taste beer, cream cheese taste overwhelming. Dip was tossed at end of the evening. Oh well."
"Excellent! Was great with both regular pretzels and soft pretzels."
"This dip was the biggest disappointment! What a waste of ingredients! I should have listened to the negative reviews on this one, in my heart I knew it wouldn't be any good. I foolishly was expecting something like a "Beer Cheese" in a dip form. First of all, you cannot taste any beer flavor at all. Secondly, it's not very cheesy, there is too much cream cheese. And as for the ranch...save it for something else, it adds nothing. I tried to spice this dip up with many spices to give it flavor to save it, I even let it sit overnight for the flavors to meld. It was TASTELESS! We ended up heating it and it was barely tolerable. This was the only dip I made for Super Bowl...what a complete disappointment. I wished I'd gone with a tried and true dip instead."
"Great flavor and easy to make."
"Winner ! I made up just 1/2 of this recipe and had quite a bit left over. I used some of it tostuff a jalapeno pepper with. Hubby really enjoyed this lightened up version. The last little bitI used to stuff celery. One recipe served 3 ways and everyone was wonderful. Ranch dressing mix can be on the salty side so I would suggest seasoning as you go along. The taste is even better the next day. I used a light beer and could not detect it at all. Great for entertaining.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
"This has been a winner WITH EVERYONE, EVERY TIMEChef01"
"Super easy but way too salty - I would only use half a package of seasoning or add another brick of cream cheese if I were to make this again."
"easy and it taste great"
"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."
