Smoked Gouda Beer Cheese is a delicious creamy appetizer that’s perfect appetizer dip for entertaining or watching the big game. Serve it with some homemade beer pretzels, vegetable sticks, bread or pour it over some pasta for a winning mac ‘n cheese!
I made you some cheesy beer, y’all! Or maybe I made you some beer-y cheese?
Either way, I thought we’d take a little break from apples and talk about some Smoked Gouda Beer Cheese. After all, it’s not just apple season. It’s football season too and the real Oktoberfest in Munich kicks off this weekend. All these occasions demand a celebration with some beer cheese.
This stuff is so good, y’all! You can serve it as a warm dip for vegetables or bread the next time you have your peeps over to watch the game. It also makes a totally awesome sauce. Now that I think about it, this would make an amazing mac ‘n beer cheese! With bacon! OMG! I need to get on that STAT!
Sorry – I got a bit distracted by how dreamy this smoked gouda beer cheese is. I’m keeping things short today and peacing out. But before I go – I joke you not. You need this in your life!

- I made this smoked gouda beer cheese twice. I used Lonerider Brewing Company Sweet Josie Brown and Brooklyn Brewing Summer Ale and both were amazing!
- I don’t recommend using an IPA or other hoppy beer for this recipe
- If you’re not a fan of smoked gouda cheese, feel free to substitute one that you like, but you’ll want to balance the type of beer you use
