Tips for Making Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels

  • Darker beers will have more flavor, you can always add more in, but 6 oz is perfect for me!
  • To make the beer cheese dip spicier, add more cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or jalapenos
  • If you leave out the beer cheese for pretzels, it will thicken. If it gets too thick add a little milk.
  • Have leftovers? Store in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave, stirring often.
  • If you find the beer cheese to be too thick immediately while cooking, reduce the amount of cheese OR increase the amount of beer
