It’s been a long day - at the office, the studio, working from home, wherever you put in your hours. But now you’re finally off the clock. You grab a cold beer from the fridge, crack it open, and plop down on your couch to review your Facebook event invites and plan your next move.
Hey, looks like your buddy is throwing a get-together tonight at his place and it’s a potluck! That sounds dope… But you’ve been so busy you haven’t gone shopping this week. Even worse, the party starts in an hour and (let’s be honest) cooking ain’t exactly your forte. What are you gonna do so you don’t show up empty handed - or worse, with boring, store-bought chips and dip?
The answer is right in front of you, my friend, ice cold and refreshing as it perspires in your hand: beer. No, we’re not talking about skipping the party, finishing a six-pack by yourself and watching Netflix. We’re talking about whipping together a batch of our bomb-ass, party-ready Beer Cheese Dip.
So simple even the non-culinary inclined - and slightly buzzed - can make it, this classic beer cheese dip is a gooey, rich treat ideal for tailgating, camping, parties or just a chill afternoon enjoying a couple cold ones with friends. Make it ahead of time and throw it in one of our Adventure Vacuum Crock Pots to keep it bubbling and hot for up to 12 hours. That way, if your party destination is sans stove, you’ve still got hot g'nosh on tap. So go ahead, crack another brew-dog and toast to cheesy, boozy goodness.
