Easy Beer Cheese – Two Ways is so versatile you can make the original version or mix things up by using pimento cheese for a fun and delicious alternative.
This post was originally published on January 29, 2017, but the Super Bowl is tomorrow so I thought you could use some easy beer cheese.
So I was trying to relax at the nail salon while getting an overdue and much deserved manicure and pedicure. I had a glass of delicious red wine in my hand and reached for some beer cheese when I’m abruptly awakened from my dream like state with a complaint from Lisa. You have never put this beer cheese on your blog. What?
Au contraire mon frere.
I have put Lisa’s beer cheese recipe on this ridiculous website, but I can understand the oversight since it wasn’t in the title. It was actually the first recipe I shared when I launched my new look almost two years ago.
In order to make Lisa
eat her words happy and because I absolutely cannot get excited about either one of the teams playing in the Super Bowl this year, so I’m going to be faceplanting in some beer cheese only coming up long enough to watch commercials and hope Tom Brady gets sacked, I share with you two versions of beer cheese – Lisa’s original and pimento.
Yes, from the girl who said she doesn’t like pimentos because she doesn’t like olives. I’m looking at you, Lisa.
Easy Beer Cheese – Two Ways
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened

- 1 -2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 = 3/4 cup beer
Combine cream cheese, cheddar, garlic, and Worcestershire Sauce in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until combined.

- I used my Irish Red Ale home brew for this, but you can use any beer that you want. Just remember that it is going to taste like whatever beer you use, so be careful of anything too hoppy or with flavors you don’t want in your cheese.
- Serve with pretzels, chips, bread, pita, vegetables, or any other kind of snack you like
