Beer & Cheese Dip

Beer & Cheese Dip


  • 1/4 cup of Stout or Porter
  • 1/4 cup of Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 16 oz. bag of shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 jalapeno, minced (optional)


  1. Combine the beer, mustard, butter, and cayenne pepper in a saucepan on medium heat until well mixed.

  2. Gradually add the cheese, in 1 cup batches, whisking until the texture is smooth. Stop adding cheese once you have achieved your desired thickness; remove from heat and stir in minced jalapeno.

  3. Note: for a tangier taste – reduce the shredded cheese to 8 ounces and add one 8-oz packages of cream cheese.
