  • 4 pounds grated cheese (blend of 75% white cheddar, 25% cheese of your choice)
  • 3/4 pounds cream cheese or Neufchatel
  • 1/2 medium onion red or yellow minced
  • 1/4 cup dry mustard
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt, kosher
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic salt
  • 2 1/2 cups Hefeweizen
  • 2 ounces  feta or goat cheese crumbled


  1. To make this hefeweizen beer cheese dip, add cheeses, minced onion, Worcestershire, mustard, kosher salt and garlic salt together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Blend ingredients together completely using a mixer. While mixer is still running, slowly add beer until it is entirely incorporated. Can be served immediately.
  3. Option: Heat the completed dip over the stove stirring until smooth, or warm in microwave stirring in minute intervals until heated through. This will create a fondue style appetizer.
  4. You may want to halve or quarter the recipe as it makes quite a bit.
