Beer + Cheese is always a winning combination. Or at least in my book.
Those of you that have been reading this bliggity-blog for a while know that I've never met a cheese I didn't like. The same is true for most dips and many beers. When I saw this beer cheese dip in the most recent issue of Delta Magazine it was pretty obvious town that I would make them.
This dip was muy fallish. Couple it with some buddies, wine and a firepit and it was insta fall gathering worthy of a roof raise.
It was also worth of a sharp in front/blurry in the back pretzel picture. What, what aperture??
A word on this dip...it has a very stout flavor to it. I thought it was going to be to much BUT it's oddly enough evened out by the the pretzels. I guess it's a food science thing...perhaps I'll call Alton Brown!
