I made this Beer Dip today for a German-themed party on Saturday. I used 1/2 cup beer, and I used sharp white cheddar cheese (I’m allergic to Annatto, the colorant used in many yellow cheeses). The dip turned out great, very tasty, and I know my guests will love it! Thank you for the recipe, Michelle!

I had this for the first time at a work holiday party and it was really good. I made mine today and it turned out great. I used 3/4 cup of beer in mine. Great with pretzels and it is so easy to make!

Super easy and quick to make. I recommend letting it chill for at least an hour. I made this a day ahead of time and served it with mini pretzels. It's a perfect snack to serve when you're having friends over or to take to a party. I used a Pilsner in this recipe and it was perfect!

I followed recipe as it was presented and added: 7-oz. Genoa salami, chopped fine in food processor. I'd spread the dip on halved loaf of bread; covered and baked 15 minutes at 425o F., uncovered and baked 5 minutes. I'd broiled the dip/loaf 1 to 2 minutes. This dip is a 5* rating!

I made this years ago for a group of friends. Perfect snack! Both salty and creamy, a great combo.

Make sure you use Ranch Dressing and seasoning packet. Like the recipe calls for. Do not use Ranch Dip seasoning packet. That may be why some of you complained about it being too salty. The Dip packet contains almost double the salt.

A friend made this when 3 of us got together. We used celery, carrot sticks, green pepper 'sticks' - then got out all the crackers and pretzels we could find. Still had some left, so we warmed it a little and spread on black rye bread with ham. You can't stop eating it once you start!!

This dip was a hit at my work Dipalooza today! Easy and quick to make! Goes great with soft pretzel bites non salted.

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.
