Palmetto Beer Cheese Dip
Whether you’re gearing up for the game or just looking for something to snack on while you’re hanging around the grill, this easy beer cheese dip is sure to please. The trick for a smooth beer cheese dip is to not overcook the dip when you’re adding the cheese. The addition of our tangy Palmetto Gold BBQ Sauce adds a little something special that makes it perfect to dip some salty pretzels or crisp celery sticks. Better yet, try it on a hot dog!
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup beer (we recommend a lager, but any beer that you like will work)
½ cup Palmetto Gold BBQ Sauce
16 oz shredded cheddar cheese
3 green onions, sliced on a bias for garnish
pretzel rods, celery sticks or chips for dipping
In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, mix the cream cheese, beer and Palmetto Gold BBQ Sauce. Cook while stirring constantly until the cream cheese is melted. Reduce the heat to low and add in the cheddar cheese a bit at a time, stirring until dissolved. Make sure not to let the mixture boil. Once all the cheese is melted, transfer to a serving dish and top with green onion to garnish. Serve with pretzel rods, chips or vegetables.
