Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip

With football season in full swing (my Packers made the playoffs this year!), snacks are a must with watching the big game. This dip is a great crowd pleaser and makes a good amount.

Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip:

2 - 8 ounce blocks cream cheese or Neufchâtel cheese, softened
1 package of dry ranch seasoning packet
4 ounces of beer (personal preference is a blonde beer)
2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese (prefer sharp cheddar)
Pretzels or any other food you want to pair the dip with

Mix cream cheese and ranch packet in stand mixer at low setting. Slowly pour in beer until mix. Add shredded cheese and continue mixing until combined.

Serve after chilled with pretzel twists.
