The Drunken Philadelphian Beer Cheese Spread

3 Aug

Beer Cheese DisplayMy first week at a desk job and I’m already pulled back into the kitchen. My new office held a company wide dip off. You heard me right, a dip off.

The eccentric CEO put out a call to action for the most creative dips. Entries spanned from salsa to cookie dough spread. Each entry was rated on taste, appearance, and creativity and the wining entry received a $250 grand prize.

Out of 25 entries, my dip took second place! It tasted delicious, but my Philadelphia theme probably didn’t hurt. Try it out and see for yourself.Beer Cheese Ingredients

The Drunken Philadelphian Beer Cheese

Ingredients: (Serves 4-6)

  • 8 oz. block of extra sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Yuengling Lager (Any lager works)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (as garnish)

Step 1: Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until everything is fully incorporated.Beer Cheese Blender

Step 2: Sprinkle with parsley and serve with soft pretzel bites!

Beer Cheese FinalThe dip is tangy, smooth, and hoppy. I found it to taste best with soft pretzels, but veggies or chips would work too. It’s a perfect dip for entertaining or watching an Eagles game.

      Thanks! First place was a brownie batter dip, which was actually pretty amazing because who doesn’t love brownie batter?
