Ok, I will start off by saying I am not a beer drinker. I personally prefer a glass of wine every now and  then when company comes over BUT when used in this cold beer cheese dip recipe. This post brought to you by The Chinet® brand. (affiliate links present)

Cold Beer Cheese Dip

I seriously can’t keep my hands off of this, served cold! Pair it with some pretzels, chips, or a loaf of the best beer bread alongside your hot dip recipes and people will go crazy over it. Believe me it won’t last long. It is amazing!!

I’m a sucker for dips. Whether we are having people over for a barbecue, or it is a holiday I LOVE snacking. Dips make snacks just that much better.

I’ve made beer bread many times with different dips. This time when I was making jalapeno poppers I thought some of the ingredients could be made into a dip. It turned out to be really good! Let me show you how to make it…it’s super easy!

Beer Cheddar Cheese Dip

While you’re out gathering the ingredients you need be sure to grab Chinet plates and disposable Chip & Dip Party Trays! Seriously, anything that makes cleanup easier for me I am ALL about.

You can throw your beer cheese dip in the center once you’re done. Add pretzels and chips around it and it is definitely be everyone’s favorite snack before the meal arrives. 😉

I have made a version without the beer and realized that it wasn’t nearly as good. There is very little in it so you really don’t have to worry about the kids taking a small bite. Just that 1/4 of a cup brings so much flavor to this creamy cream cheese based dip.

Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels

The base is basically beer, cheddar cheese and cream cheese which in itself is pretty amazing. Add some diced jalapenos and WOW. You can pair it with all sorts of things but soft pretzels next to our ever so popular dijon mustard pretzel dip is always the best.

If you want a mild heat dice 1/2. If you’re into more of a “fiery” flavor just dice the whole thing (after you remove all the seeds). I like diced chiles in a can and those aren’t spicy but really bring a wonderful flavor to it. You could try those too, or use both!

  1. Beer can be any type you like though I like a pale ale, pub style beer will give this a deeper flavor
  2. Cream cheese softened so it incorporates well with the other ingredients
  3. Mayonnaise
  4. Shredded cheddar cheese is what we use, sharp cheddar cheese is our fave for a pub style cheese dip though white cheddar would be milder
  5. Diced jalapeno and/or chiles is what I add for game day to make it a spicy beer flavor duo

 If you love this, try our Instant Pot beer cheese soup too. Now that can be a complete meal and not just something you’d pair next to your charcuterie plate for a party.

Beer Cheese Dip Cold

If you are serving this to guests you will want this to look pretty. The best way to get this done but still make it look presentable is to mix it in a bowl, but don’t serve it in that. It will get a bit messed up in the process so have your prettier serving dish on the side. Once done I put in an airtight container in the refrigerator to cool. My preference.

Then when ready to serve move it from there to a pretty bowl of sorts. Then you can use this same container if you do in fact have some leftovers. I generally won’t save any left though because if there were any kids present they most likely double dipped and I don’t want to share their germs later. 😉

  • Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix really well. It is easier if you leave the cream cheese on the counter so it gets softer and once all items are mixed well put into a container
  • When you get the consistency you want, wrap bowl with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour or so to intensify flavors, or serve immediately if you desire.

Try it for yourself with different types of ale. Darker versions will become more intense while milder lighter bottles will give you a chance to taste more of the cheese flavors. Some like to add 1 packet of dry ranch seasoning for another tweak, you could try that too if you like.
