Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the best beer for beer cheese sauce? Can use any kind of beer you prefer.
    • Use a Pale Ale or Light beer for a subtle beer flavor.
    • Use a Darker Beer or Hoppy IPA for bold flavors.
    • I use Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale.
  • Can substitute dijon mustard for dry mustard in the sauce.
  • Substitute cayenne pepper for paprika to give the dip a little kick.
  • Use gluten-free beer and cornstarch for a gluten-free dip!
  • I used sharp cheddar cheese. This would also be good with some smoked gouda, pepper jack, white cheddar, or a nutty gruyère.
    • Expert tip: grate a block of cheese with a box grater for this recipe. I find that freshly grated cheese melts better than pre-shredded cheese from the bag.
  • Keep the dip warm in a small slow cooker for parties.
  • Does Beer Cheese Sauce have alcohol in it? Yes. The recipe does use actual beer. Feel free to use a non-alcoholic beer if you want an alcohol-free dip.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container. Reheat in a crockpot on low or in the microwave.
