  • Small saucepan
  • Cheese Grater
  • whisk
  • Wooden Spoon


  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup beer organic lager
  • 1 ¾ cups extra old cheddar cheese freshly grated
  • ¼ cup pizza mozzarella freshly grated


  • In a small saucepan melt the heavy cream and butter on medium heat. Do not allow the mixture to boil as you can burn the butter and cream.
  • Once melted add the spices and mustard. Mix to combine.
  • Next, add the beer and cook on medium heat for one minute.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses. If they don’t melt completely return to the heat on low and mix until the dip is smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately with soft pretzels!


  • This dip is best made close to when you want to serve it. It will reheat but the texture is best when it’s freshly made.
  •  If you find the dip too thin add 1 tablespoon of flour to a small amount of the dip, mix well and return it to the saucepan and it will thicken quickly. If the dip is too thick add a bit more cream, butter, or a splash of milk or beer. Mix until the desired consistency.
  • If you don’t have soft pretzels you can serve this dip with warm baguette slices, crispy pretzels, or raw veggies! Drinking a beer is also an excellent complement to this dip!
