Creamy Base:

  • 2 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 3/8 stick of unsalted butter

Cheese Fusion:

  • 6 oz White Cheddar Cheese

Flavorful Harmony:

  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/6 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 oz light-bringer beer
  • 1.5 tbsp all-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13 baking dish with butter or non-stick spray.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour until combined and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the chilli powder and salt and continue to whisk together until everything is incorporated and thickens slightly (about 1 minute).
  • Gradually add in the beer while constantly stirring until everything is smooth and there are no lumps. Reduce heat to low, and add cheese cream and shredded cheddar cheese; stir continuously until melted and combined (about 3 minutes).
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm with tortilla chips, crackers, or vegetables and enjoy!


• To make a thicker beer cheese dip, add an additional tablespoon of flour to the saucepan while whisking in the butter and flour at the beginning of step 2.
• Make sure to use freshly grated cheddar cheese rather than pre-shredded cheese for best results.
• You can also experiment by using different types of beer, such as a stout or pilsner for a unique flavor.
• For an extra kick, you can add some freshly diced jalapenos or hot sauce to the mixture before baking.
