  • 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese

  2. Slowly add the beer and continue processing until the mixture is completely smooth.
  3. Dip can be served immediately or refrigerated for one hour to chill and firm.
  4. To serve warm, place dip into a medium saucepan and stir continuously over low heat until warm OR place dip in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on High for 1 minute intervals, stirring after each interval. Repeat until dip is heated thru.
