Beer and Cheese Dip

Alex hosts a weekly game night for several of his friends and I like to make snack food for them. They love having chips and different kinds of dip so I decided this was a fantastic way to use the extra Guinness I had in my fridge left over from making Guinness cake.

I’ve used ground beef in this recipe but you could also use bacon crumbles if you prefer. I already had some ground beef browned so I thought it would be the perfect addition.

I never actually got a photo of this dip because the boys ate all before I could get one. They typically don’t eat dips I make that fast so they really must have loved this one (either that or they were really hungry, you can never know with a group of men).  However, you’ll just have to take my word that it actually looked beautiful and your guest will fall in love with it.

Beer and Cheese Dip


  • ½ lb Ground Beef (prepared)
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Small Onion (diced)
  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard
  • 4oz cream Cheese
  • 6oz Beer
  • 3 Cups Shredded Cheddar
  • Siracha (to taste)

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 baking dish.

Saute the onions and butter in a large frying pan.

Once the onions are translucent add in the rest of the ingredients (except ground beef). Melt everything together.

Stir in the ground beef. Transfer to the prepared dish. Top with additional shredded cheddar.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with chips.
