Who doesn’t love a big pot of molten cheese?

(There is a wrong answer to this question, just so you know.)

A good queso recipe is something every cook should have in their arsenal.

Today’s beer cheese dip is incredible, not only because it requires just three ingredients, but because it tastes so darn good.

Beer, Cheese, and Cream Cheese

A homemade queso recipe is a thing of beauty. I have several recipes that I alternate through for parties and events, but this beer cheese dip is truly one of my favorites.

It’s bursting with spice, salty-nutty essence from the cheese, and hoppy goodness.

If you like a nice bottled brew, and you love cheese, you are going to want to kiss my face after tasting this.

I’ll set up a kissing booth in preparation.

Beer Cheese Dip Recipe

I started with a local spring brew, Highland Little Hump.

You can use one of your favorite beers. Just pick one that is light and refreshing, not heavy and robust. Then whisk in cream cheese and shredded pepper jack cheese.

Once the cheese has melted into the beer, you have a smooth creamy, slightly-spicy queso recipe with a bright wheaty beer quality.

It’s thin enough to pour over pasta, or to use as a cheese sauce for Mexican dishes, yet it is great for dipping.

Does This Beer Cheese Dip Need To Stay Warm?

Our 3-Ingredient Beer Cheese Dip Recipe does stay loose for a while.

However, if you are planning to have the Beer Cheese Dip out for a long period of time, I would recommend keeping it warm in a small crockpot.

  10. Denelle bauerposted January 7, 2016 at 5:42 pm Reply

    Awesome flavor….but DID NOT thicken up.

  11. TBuckposted December 21, 2015 at 8:22 pm Reply

    I added cumin and garlic powder to ramp up the flavor, but regardless this is close to my favorite restaurant queso!!

  12. brewbetterposted October 7, 2015 at 8:11 pm Reply

    I like the combo.  You can make this in a crock pot and it will make itself.  Nice.  Will make this for a homemade pretzel dip.  Life is good.

    Oh thank god. I just tried the new Pace beer and cheese dip and it was disgusting. Like, so so so bad. I just wrote a review of it on my other blog and posted a link to this recipe as an alternative to pre-packaged torture. (Seriously, it was so bad). I’ll have to try this now just to get the taste out of my mouth!

    Does this need to stay warm? Thinking about taking it to a trivia night where the snacks will be out on the table while we play. Just wondering if I need to keep it in a crockpot.

    • Sommerposted September 26, 2014 at 8:44 pm Reply

      Hi Michelle, It does stay loose for a little while, but would be better off warming in a crockpot.

      • Katieposted October 26, 2015 at 1:54 pm

        Have you made in a crock pot? Or cook on stove, and transfer to crock pot to keep warm?
