How to Make Beer Cheese Dip

This Beer Dip is incredibly easy (two cheeses, dry ranch mix or packet, BEER, chives or scallions, garlic powder) and is delicious served with pretzels, chips, or crackers.

The recipe calls for three (3) blocks of cream cheese. That’s 24 ounces of cream cheese. Obviously you can scale the recipe back if you are willing to divide a packet of the dry ranch seasoning mix as needed. Everything else is pretty easy to scale down.

Softened (room temperature) cream cheese is essential for easy blending. To make this even easier (or if you won’t have time to let the cream cheese soften), substitute equal amounts of whipped cream cheese.

  1. Sounds delicious! I just dot some dry ranch and will definitely try it this weekend! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I just threw this together to go with our bacon bombs. I didn’t have any chives so I subbed onion powder. Super delicious. I can’t stay out of it.

  3. Does it matter what kind of beer you use?

  4. I make this delicious dip for all my parties and my guests love it. they always come in and scope out where the beer dip is.
    Has anyone ever tried a Mexican spin on this? My next party is tacos and tequila themed, but if there’s not beer dip, there might be a riot. 😂
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi, Haley! Like maybe taco dip and beer dip had a baby? Or do you want something with a layer of refried beans (or corn), or guacamole? Happy to experiment, there is NO WAY this could end badly! Just hoping to give you what you want. Please let me know if you get a chance! I feel like adding some taco seasoning to this recipe as-is would be delicious, but I’m not sure if that’s what you had in mind.

  5. You are totally feeling my vibe with beer dip and taco dip having an illegitimate love child. I want to keep the texture and consistency of the beer dip, but give it a Mexican spin. I thought about maybe asking taco seasoning and taco sauce or a smooth salsa?
