Everything can be made on the stove or a slow cooker. I made mine on the stove and then transferred it to a small slow cooker to keep the dip warm. Once the ingredients heat together, it blends nicely.

Main Ingredients for Beer Dip

Shredded Cheese – I use a mild Cheddar but you can use sharp Cheddar cheese if you like.

Cream Cheese – name brand or generic ok

Beer – An IPA or Lager beer works best but you can use your favorite beer too! 

Mustard – you can use a yellow or a dijon mustard

Chives or green onions
