Wisconsin Beer Cheese Dip

Beer cheese dip with pretzels and beer

Anyone can make a regular Beer Cheese Dip, but a proper WISCONSIN Beer Cheese Dip needs to use two crucial ingredients – local Wisconsin beer and ranch! Put these three flavors together and you’ve got what might be the holy trinity of dips. With beer, cheese, and ranch seasoning, you know this Wisconsin Beer Cheese Dip is going to be a hit at whatever fall parties you’re enjoying.

When it comes to your beer selection for this dip, you can really have some fun getting creative with flavor. Something with a little sweetness like the famous Wisconsin brew Spotted Cow would be delicious here. Looking more local to the Milwaukee area, the hop-forward Midwest Pale Ale Happy Place from Third Space Brewery would bring a little tang to the party.

We love dipping in pretzels or crackers or on a soup buffet paired with our Sprecher Beer Bread. Dollop extra on baked potatoes or on top of hamburgers to keep that Wisconsin love flowing. The best part of this Wisconsin Beer Cheese Dip Recipe is that it only calls for a half cup of beer, so the remainder is all yours!
