With only 7 ingredients, this Easy Beer Cheese Dip is ready for game day in under 30 minutes! You'll want to slather it on everything!

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups 1x


  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP flour
  • 1 tsp garlic (chopped)
  • 2 tsp dark paprika
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 6 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 oz of your favorite beer (we used IPA, however it was bitter for some. I liked it alot, but for a more subtle flavor use a lager)


  1. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter then add the flour and whisk and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add bottle of beer and whisk until smooth.
  3. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic and paprika and continue to whisk until all cheese has melted and product is smooth (about 5 minutes).


  • USE IT AS BEER CHEESE SAUCE: There is no milk or heavy cream in the recipe (just cheese) so it is thick and perfect for dipping, not runny!
  • MAKE AHEAD: you can make this dip ahead of time. Store it in the fridge and heat it up in a sauce pan (or microwave) minutes before you are ready to serve.
  • STORAGE: Beer Cheese Dip can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 to 6 days.
